Settlement Reached in Alonzo McGhee Life Insurance Case
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -
The former wife of murder victim Alonzo McGhee and his estate have reached an agreement on McGhee's life insurance policy proceeds.
According to federal court documents filed Monday, Fillis McGhee and her former husband's estate filed a joint motion to disburse the $437,000 in life insurance money. Exactly how much each side would receive in the settlement was not disclosed.
Alonzo McGhee was shot more than a dozen times outside the family's home on Pale Dawn Place in January 2013, six days after Alonzo McGhee's was awarded custody of the couple's children from their divorce. To date, no one has been charged with his murder.
Primerica Life Insurance Company filed the initial case in March 2013, claiming it could not pay Fillis McGhee the money because she had not been ruled out as a suspect in her ex-husband's death.
Primerica eventually withdrew from the case after depositing the money with the court. McGhee's estate then took over as plaintiff in the case.
