Win The Lottery And Proceed Directly To Prison For Murder
Former postal worker Freddie Young, 63, won an estimated $1.57 million share of a Michigan Lottery jackpot in February 2011.
On Monday, he was found guilty Monday of second-degree murder.
He was convicted of killing Australian native Greg McNicol, 45, who was shot outside an apartment complex he was renovating on Detroit's east side. McNichol had been involved in a longstanding dispute with Young's daughter, who was a tenant, over $1,000 in unpaid rent and loud, unruly visitors.
According to the Detroit News, the prosecution argued Young was angry over McNicol's attempt to evict his daughter. On May 7, 2011, McNicol and the tenant were arguing outside the 10-unit complex on Beniteau Street when Young drove up, exited his Chevy Avalanche brandishing a .44-caliber revolver and shot McNicol once in the lower abdomen. Young had $150,000 in cash and $500,000 in money orders inside the vehicle.
