(CNN) A millionaire stock trader was sentenced to nine years in prison Monday in the death of a worker he'd hired to dig tunnels beneath his house in suburban Washington, DC, as protection from potential North Korean missile strikes.
A deadly fire underneath a wealthy hacker's Maryland home has exposed a bizarre underground nuclear bunker project that claimed the life of a young man he hired over the internet to dig tunnels, Askia Khafra, reports the Associated Press. Maryland prosecutors portray Beckwitt, a 27-year-old millionaire, as a paranoid computer hacker who recklessly endangered Khafra’s life. In May, they secured Beckwitt’s indictment on charges of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. -AP Prosecutors say Beckwitt had a "paranoid fixation" about a possible nuclear attack by North Korea.
