A man acquitted of killing his father will spend four years in prison for living off his dad’s veteran benefits.   Authorities claimed Mark Christian strangled his 74-year-old father and burried his body in the mountains more than a decade ago. 

A jury and federal prosecutors did not have enough evidence to convict him.  christian did plead guilty to stealing nearly $80,000 in disability payments intended for his father, which led to the prison sentence.
