Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, the former Green Beret physician convicted of killing his wife and children, is being sued by his slain wife's parents, who want to claim a $325,000 settlement he is getting from the author of a book about the slayings.
Mildred and Alfred G. Kassab filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday, seeking an order impounding the settlement, as well as past and future proceeds, from the best-selling book, "Fatal Vision."
MacDonald's attorney, Gary Bostwick, said Monday that he was unaware of the suit but was not surprised to hear it had been filed.
The Kassabs claim they "have suffered great and irreparable harm at the hands of (MacDonald). . . , losing their loving daughter and granddaughters early in life."
