An Australian man who was accused of having $1.4 million reasons to assist his wife's suicide was found guilty. Graham Morant was convicted of the crime in order to collect his wife's life insurance. According to report:
Morant, 69, was today convicted by a Brisbane Supreme Court jury of aiding and counselling Jennifer Morant to kill herself on the Gold Coast in 2014.

Morant was the sole beneficiary of her three life insurance policies totalling $1.4 million when she took her own life in November that year.
The evidence confirmed that Jennifer Morant had back pain, but Graham Morant persuaded her, over several months, to die by suicide. According to the report:
Morant claimed to police his wife wanted to die, but two witnesses close to her testified she did not want to kill herself and was scared by his pressure on her to do so.
The Judge will sentence Graham Morant on October 19.
