An Australian man is being accused of helping his wife commit suicide by convincing her that she was too weak to survive the Rapture, making him the beneficiary of a $1.4 million life insurance plan.
Graham Robert Morant, 69, of Queensland pleaded not guilty recently in the case surrounding the 2014 suicide of his wife, Jennifer Morant, reported the New Zealand-based 1 News Now.
Lynette Lucas, sister of the late Mrs. Morant, told a jury that Graham had convinced his wife that the Rapture was imminent and that she was not sufficiently prepared for it.
“He had explained to her that he was going to have a communal environment, with bunkers and extended out-buildings so that when the raptures came, they would have a place of safety,” stated Lucas, as quoted by 1 News Now.
“He did reinforce they (the raptures) were very imminent. They were coming soon and Jenny would not be able to cope with this disaster and it would be better if she weren’t around to experience it.”
For his part, Morant denies any wrongdoing, claiming that he was unaware that the life insurance policies his late wife had taken out equaled $1.4 million, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
