Prosecutors have charged the eye surgeon with two counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder.
These are two good articles about this:
- Clearly Lasik co-founder accused of soliciting murder of partner and
- Eye doctor charged with arranging hit.
To add insult to planned-injury the “bad” doctor maybe using franchisor funds to defend himself against charges of trying to have a Russian Mafia-type whack his partner, Dr. Joseph King (right in picture above), and their former associate, a Mr. Brad Klock of Vancouver. (see Doctor in murder-for-hire case also facing civil suit)
The quote I like the most is:
…”he [the bad doctor] held no personal animosity toward Dr. King, only toward Mr. Klock”
It is my experience that franchisors do not respond well to being aggressively resisted, especially being sued.
Below is a video of Dr. Mockovak while, it appears, Dr. King is in hiding.
