MAN DIES IN COURT AFTER BEING SENTENCED TO 16 YEARS IN PRISON
53 year old Michael Marin was an Ex Wall street trader until he was found culpable in a fire incidence. He was found guilty in a Phoenix-area courtroom Thursday of setting his mansion on fire in a ploy to escape his mortgage debt...in a twist of fate he appeared to put something into his mouth, suffered a seizure and died.
Police are now investigating whether he purposefully killed himself. Shortly after the jury read its verdict and sentenced him to 16 years in prison, Marin appeared to place something in his mouth several times and drink from a bottle he brought with him into the courtroom. Minutes later, he suffered from a seizure and died. Police can't yet confirm whether Marin’s death was a suicide.
