It’s so hard to find good neighbors. Some play their music too loud, others let their dogs go on your lawn, and then there are the troublesome wife murderers.
That’s how it is for Bill and Hillary Clinton, who thought they’d fought a nice quiet residence when they moved to Chappaqua, New York. Turns out they were wrong. Carlos Perez-Olivio, a 60-year-old disbarred attorney who lived on the same cul-de-sac as Bill and Hillary has been sentenced to 25 years to life for the murder of his wife in November, 2006.
Unable to practice law because of misconduct while representing criminal clients, Perez-Olivio was suffering financial problems when he decided to kill his wife to collect nearly a million dollars in life insurance. He shot her in the back of the head as they drove home.
Perez-Olivio was also wounded in what prosecutors said was a self-inflicted gunshot to make it look like they were being carjacked.
The vintage Walther PPK handgun was found in a lake near the crime scene.
