Trial begins for York County man, accused of killing wife

Opening statements began Tuesday in the trial of a York County man accused of killing his wife and trying to make it look like an accident.

Police say Joseph Fitzpatrick III of Felton killed his wife, 44-year-old Annemarie Fitzpatrick in 2012.

Investigators say Annmarie died when her ATV crashed into a creek but according to an autopsy, Annmarie has bruises and abrasions that do not match that story.

Police say Joseph Fitzpatrick would have gained $1.7 million from life insurance policies. He is charged with murder.
