Kayak killer wants $500,000 from fiancé's estate

The 'kayak killer' who caused her fiancé to drown by pulling the plug on his canoe in 2015 is trying to win half of his life insurance policy despite being convicted for his death.

Angelika Graswald was freed from prison in December, two years after watching her 46-year-old fiancé Vincent Viafore being swept away by choppy waters on New York's Hudson River.

She pulled a drain plug out from his kayak and pushed a paddle away from him as he got into choppy waters.

Last year, the 37-year-old pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and she was sentenced to up to four years in prison.

Graswald, a Latvian immigrant, was released six weeks after her conviction based on the two-and-a-half years she spent behind bars waiting for her trial.
