Montgomery County Pennsylvania criminal court progress

Another court appearance in Montgomery County Pennsylvania court – this time criminal court to answer to charges of fraud, perjury, conspiracy and insurance fraud before Judge Joseph A. Smythe Montgomery County Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas. (Case CP-46-CR-0003194-2011)

Three of the four defendants; Annetta Frackman, sister of Darlene Zachry, Lisa and William “Bill” Werneke were allowed to once again postpone their day in court.

Judge Joseph A. Smythe asked Darlene to take the stand and explained to Darlene the penalty she faced due to the remaining charges – third degree felony.  She could be sentenced to 3.5 to 7 years prison and $15,000. fine.

Once again, Darlene attempted to offer another version of her story, how she “found her deceased husband’s will on his computer and it was electronically signed”.

Judge Smythe quickly reminded her that she was “under oath” and an assistant district attorney told Darlene “she had already testified to that”.

The original story from deposition and orphans court testimony was Darlene found Ray’s will “in his safe”.  Darlene’s sister, Annetta Frackman testified that she “seen him sign it” and the couple Lisa and William “Bill” Werneke testified they witnessed Ray trace over his already written signature to prove to them he had signed the day before at his sister-in-law’s house.

The safe where the widow Zachry claimed she “found” her husband’s will that was proven in court to be a forgery

When the document examiner handed out her court program and displayed her exhibit boards with the “signature” enlarged, it was easy to see the underlying “signature” was a computer generated, cut and paste signature (identical to the NY Life Ins letter) that also matched a third document – a non competition agreement Ray Zachry had signed for his employer, Vertis Communication Company on March 9, 2007; two months after the forged will was dated.The 15 page decision of Judge Stanley Ott, superior judge of Montgomery County Pennsylvania Orphans Court, explained how he arrived at his decision the four people had not told the truth and perjured themselves.The exhibits of the document examiner left no doubt, especially the transparencies that she furnished of each document, according to the decision.  When stacked one on another they appeared as one signature.

“That is impossible”, J. Wright Leonard told the court, “for anyone to make three identical signatures”.

  4. I continue to pray for you and your husband. I pray that this all finally gets resolved and that you get the heirlooms back that mean so much. I pray too that Darlene and the rest of them come clean, tell the truth, and accept the consequences of their actions.

    Finally going to trial
    ? Now that is good news! God bless…



    • Thank you Jonnie for visiting Justice for Raymond and you comment. I hope you have seen the video of Ray’s story that was released yesterday a link was posted here and on Ken Lang Studio did a splendid job of research.

      Darlene was told of her right to a jury trial Wednesday in court, and the possible penalty – 3.5 -7 years and a fine of $15,000. It seems a huge price to pay for not talking to Ray’s family and discussing what happened the day Ray died. Had she been cooperative in an investigation rather than obstruction – we would all know those circumstances. I NEVER asked for anything from Darlene other than our family heirloons that I left with Ray when my husband and I retired to FLA. All the forgery was for no reason…

      Please forgive me my rant – but I have no hate for Darlene as she repeatedly says, only sorrow that Ray is gone and we can’t understand her anger….



  6. Continuing in prayer for you. Asking the Lord for justice to be done, patience given to you and comfort for you heart. Lord bless you.



    • Thank you. Your messages are such a comfort…all the Internet friends have been such a blessing. I feel there will be new information regarding Ray’s death before the end of this ordeal…..I just keep on praying for guidance.
