Man Accused Of Pushing Wife Off Cliff

KSAL StaffJuly 14, 2014

A retired Kansas schoolteacher accused of pushing his wife off a cliff in Maine is going on trial on attempted murder charges.

Jury selection begins Monday in Rockland in the case of 71-year-old Charles Black, who now lives in Salt Lake City. He is also charged with two counts of elevated aggravated assault and three counts of aggravated assault.

Prosecutors say Charles Black tried to kill Lisa Black by hitting her on the head with a rock before pushing her off Maiden Cliff in Camden Hills State Park in April 2011. Law enforcement officials say there was a dispute over a $4 million inheritance from Lisa’s father.

Lisa Black survived after falling a short distance and sought help. Black is banned from staying in town during the trial.
