Portsmouth PD Capt. testifies at Webber estate hearing


PORTSMOUTH - Capt. Mike Schwartz was called as the next witness to testify in the disputed $2.7 million Geraldine Webber estate hearing this morning.

Schwartz testified that he met Webber 8-10 times, and that he declined an offer to be named as a beneficiary in her May 2012 trust.

He also told the court about Webber's complaints regarding her former attorney, James Ritzo, alleging that he was trying to exploit her.

In continued testimony, Schwartz talked about complaints and internal discussions over the relationship between Goodwin and Webber - including medical care and trips to casinos.

"Goodwin should not have been checking on Webber while on duty," Schwartz said.

Additional witnesses, including a nurse, are expected to be called following Schwartz.
