A CLAIM seeking damages relating to the alleged failure to monitor and supervise convicted murderer Michael Cardamone while on parole has been lodged with the state of Victoria.
Cardamone murdered Whorouly mother of two Karen Chetcuti in January 2016 and was sentenced to life in prison without parole in August last year.
Wangaratta lawyer John Suta, in representing Ms Chetcuti’s former husband Tony Chetcuti, lodged a claim last month pertaining to his pain and suffering from the crime.
A claim on behalf of Mr Chetcuti’s children will also be lodged for pain and suffering, along with a dependency claim under the Wrongs Act 1958 (amended), for loss of financial support until they are at least 18 years of age.
Karen Chetcuti was 49 years old at the time of her death and prior to this she had “a high paying job” at the Rural City of Wangaratta council.
