Trial Set For Former Pats LB Naposki In Killing Of Orange County Millionaire

Testimony begins this week in a high-profile trial involving a former NFL linebacker and his ex-lover who are accused of killing a wealthy Orange County businessman for financial gain nearly 18 years ago. Nanette Packard and Eric Naposki, who played for the New England Patriots, are each charged with murder in the 1994 shooting death of multimillionaire William Francis McLaughlin.

The Orange County Register reports Sunday that producers from “Dateline NBC” and “48 Hours” have been attending the proceedings to prepare for true-crime documentaries. Prosecutors say Packard, McLaughlin’s former girlfriend, stood to collect $1 million in life insurance from his death. Police say Naposki, who was romantically involved with Packard, is believed to have shot McLaughlin six times at his Newport Beach home.
