The court sentenced 45-year-old Ali F. Elmasaye to the maximum sentence. In addition to the imprisonment, the court also ordered the insurance companies to pay $ 261,751 in damages. He is charged with using fake mail, personal fraud and illegal acquisition of property.
The court ruled that the act was satanic and cruel. District Judge John R. Walter said the defendant, who was an expert liar and greedy, was not afraid of even the most brutal murder.
Elmasa, who lives in the Houghton suburbs, took out a $ 3 million accidental death insurance policy for himself and his family. The policies were taken between July 2012 and March 2013. According to the prosecutor, Elmasa used to call the companies from time to time to make sure that the insurance policies were active.
On April 9, 2015, Elmasa was driving his ex-wife and two children across the bridge in the San Pedro area near the port of Los Angeles. This was after the expiry of the term of the insurance policy. He escaped after the vehicle fell into the water. His ex-wife, who was unable to swim, was rescued by nearby fishermen. Two children, aged 8 and 13, could not escape.
