DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The wife of a suburban Philadelphia hunter killed in an apparent hunting accident has sued the lawyer accused of firing the fatal shot.
In a wrongful-death lawsuit filed Monday, the widow of Barry Groh claims lawyer David Manilla is trying to hide assets, including significant real estate holding transferred to his mother and sister in the days after the November 29 shooting.
Theresa Lynn Groh is seeking an injunction to nullify the land transactions, saying Manilla is trying to shield assets.
Fifty-two-year-old Barry Groh was fatally shot shortly after killing a deer near Quakertown. Police say Manilla told officers he mistook the man for a deer.
A message left for Manilla’s criminal lawyer was not immediately returned.
