York County Man Accused Of Killing Wife, Lying About Wreck

FELTON (AP) – A York County man is in jail on a homicide charge after police accused him of murdering his wife nearly two years ago and lying about an ATV wreck into a creek to cover up the crime. State Police said 40-year-old Joseph Fitzpatrick III of Felton stood to collect over $1.7 million from the June 2012 death of his wife, Annemarie. A police affidavit says Joseph Fitzpatrick searched the Internet for “life insurance review during contestability period” and “polygraph legal in which states” in the days before his wife died. Detectives say Joseph Fitzpatrick was having an extramarital affair at the time and had plans to divorce. He is being held in York County Prison.
