Jim Sullivan married a much younger, very beautiful Lita, who was divorcing him at the time of her murder. Sullivan had a reputation of being quick to anger over the smallest things. He was unliked and even suspected as having something to do with his own uncle’s death (Frank Bienert). He wasn’t happy at all about having to pay any amount of money to Lita and in the days before her murder, had refinanced a home, purposely keeping her off the paperwork rather than chance that she might claim half of the worth in a forced sale.
After her killing, Sullivan took off on a globetrotting adventure that lasted the last two decades. When he was sued in a civil suit, he claimed near-poverty and even represented himself. Eyebrows are raised over how he’s paying for his significantly high priced legal team this time.
Jurors are being sequestered throughout this trial, which doesn’t have many of them reacting kindly. How it unfolds is certain to be rivoting.
