10 months ago
A man who won the lottery won't be spending his money anywhere anytime soon as he has just been convicted of murdering his daughter's landlord, according to the Detroit News.
Detroit's Freddie Young, 63, a former postal worker, won an estimated $1.57 million share of a Michigan Lottery jackpot in February 2011.
Just 3 months later, he took action when he drove over to his daughter's residence where she and her landlord, Australian native Greg McNicol, 45, were arguing outside.
The two had been engaged in a long-running dispute over $1,000 in unpaid rent and loud, unruly visitors.

Young arrived at the 10-unit complex, exited his Chevy Avalanche brandishing a .44-caliber revolver, and shot McNicol once in the lower abdomen.
At the time, Young himself had $150,000 in cash inside the vehicle.
On Monday, he was found guilty of second-degree murder.
