Dad charged in 2008 New York death once thought accident

Authorities say the seemingly accidental death of a New York man crushed by a pickup truck was no mishap: Four years later, his father has been charged with murdering him for insurance money.

Karl Karlsen was being held without bail Saturday in the Seneca County jail. He was arrested Friday.

His 23-year-old son, Levi, died in November 2008 while repairing a pickup truck on the family's property in Romulus, about 55 miles southwest of Syracuse.

The death was ruled accidental. But then the Seneca County sheriff's office learned this March about a life insurance policy on Levi Karlsen. It was taken out days before his death, with his father as sole beneficiary.
