Powells to share insurance benefit from slaying of 2 boys

The Associated Press

TACOMA — A federal judge says Josh Powell’s family can share in the insurance proceeds from the lives of the two young sons he killed in 2012.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton last week came in a dispute between the families of Powell and his long-missing wife, Susan Powell, over three insurance policies and associated riders.

Josh is believed to have killed Susan in Utah in 2009. He then moved to Washington state, where he killed himself and the couple’s boys.

Under the ruling, about $793,000 will go to Powell’s family. Of that, $264,000 is from a rider covering the lives of the boys.

About $2.2 million is going to a trust and to Susan’s father as conservator. The Powells believe that money should be split between the families, but that remains pending before a Utah judge.
