FL v. KANANEN (2010)

Opening Statements

A bizarre family murder 15 years apart as 41-year-old Stacey Kananen faces a life sentence for allegedly helping her brother kill their mother and bury her remains under a rock garden of his home in 2003. The siblings were allegedly after a $250,000 family insurance payout. The defense blames Stacey's brother, Richard, who pleaded and will testify against his sister in exchange for a 30-year prison sentence. However, the jury will not know the siblings were also implicated in the 1988 murder of their father, whose remains were also found buried under the garage
