Man Convicted of Killing Wife, Business Partner ‘Sports Betting’ Trial Postponed

A man convicted last month for the murder of his wife and business partner is about to go on trial once again, this time for illegal sports betting.

Federal court officials have postponed the federal gambling trial against South Carolina bookie Brett Parker and two other individuals until September 16 due to a change in public defenders.

The Feds indicted Brett and his father Jack on one-count charge of conduct of running an illegal gambling business this past February. 

60-year-old Douglas E. Taylor is also charged with one count of illegal gambling.

The State featured an excellent profile on Parker this past weekend that included the following revelation:

A few acquaintances who attended the trial said Parker and some friends would bet $1,000 a hole while playing a round of golf. If three men played, the $54,000 being wagered was more than the average South Carolinian earns in a year.
