Prisoner ordered to pay $1.86m to murdered ex-boyfriend's family
Representatives of David King’s estate sought damages and enhanced compensatory damages for the “brutal and savage execution” of King by Derek Saunders and Scott Mazzone, who were hired by girlfriend Dianna Saunders to prevent King from reporting the theft of $440,000 from Dr. William Meredith and to collect $500,000 life insurance policy payable to Dianna Saunders, according to court records.
After planning “the execution” for more than a year, Derek Saunders and Scott Mazzone attacked King in the basement of the apartment he shared with Dianna Saunders, who arranged to be away from the home at the time, according to court records.
Following the death, but before a grand jury handed up an indictment against Derek Saunders, his father — Roy Saunders — hanged himself. “Dianna Saunders (his ex-wife) held a $450,000 policy insuring his life payable to her. The whereabouts of that insurance policy is unknown,” according to court records.
On March 6, 2011, a jury found Dianna Saunders guilty of being an accomplice to first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and for the theft from Meredith. She was sentenced to life in prison at Goffstown State Prison for Women, according to court records.
“Defendant Dianna Saunders is confined at the state prison, but she did not request to be brought to the hearing,” according to the five-page order written by Tucker April 17.
