A Vancouver man accused of killing his father as a teen is now being sued by the man’s estate for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from his dad in the days before his death.
In June 2015 then-19-year-old Alexander Shevalev was charged with manslaughter in the death of his 80-year-old father Vladimir, found dead in his Coal Harbour home in March of that year.
Now the executor of Vladimir’s will, Sergei Kornev, is claiming that Alexander transferred more than $100,000 from his father’s account and credit cards in the weeks leading up to his death.
The largest chunk of that, allegedly pulled in a pair of unauthorized $50,000 transactions, was for the purchase of a 2002 360 Modena/Spider Ferrari.
Other alleged unapproved transactions, totalling around $1,800, included a run at the Edgewater Casino, and a variety of small cash withdrawals.
Court documents say after Vladimir’s death, the Vancouver Police Department investigated the purchases around the Ferrari and seized the car from Alexander.
Now, Kornev says he wants the allegedly stolen money returned, including all fees and costs surrounding it.
None of the claims have been proven in court.
