CON­CORD, N.H. (AP) — A pro­bate judge post­poned the up­com­ing trial of a man ac­cused by rel­a­tives of killing his mil­lion­aire grand­fa­ther for in­her­i­tance money af­ter the fam­ily fired some lawyers and the man was told to hire his own.

The New Hamp­shire trial was sched­uled to start Jan. 22 for 24-year-old Nathan Car­man, of Ver­non, Ver­mont, who’s de­nied any role in his grand­fa­ther’s shoot­ing death in Con­necti­cut in 2013.

Car­man’s also de­nied any role in the dis­ap­pear­ance of his mother dur­ing a 2016 fish­ing trip. Their boat sank near Rhode Is­land. Car­man’s three aunts be­lieve Car­man killed her and are try­ing to pre­vent him from in­her­it­ing the mother’s share of her father’s es­tate.

The grand­fa­ther, John Chaka­los, left his four daugh­ters, in­clud­ing Car­man’s mother, an es­tate worth more than $42 mil­lion. The Hart­ford Courant re­ports Car­man, who has been rep­re­sent­ing him­self and put his house up for sale to get money for a lawyer, is likely to be pro­vided $150,000 from a trust fund that was set up by Chaka­los.
