SAN DIEGO—Kidnapping and murder suspect James DiMaggio left behind a dark legacy and a $112,000 life insurance policy to the family of his alleged victims.

Andrew Spanswick, a spokesman for DiMaggio's family, said the money will go to Bernice Anderson, the paternal grandmother of 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and her 8-year-old brother Ethan.  

"He expected the grandmother to take care of the two children with the money. He stated he did not want it to go to their parents because they were having marital problems and he didn't trust them with the money on their own," said Spanswick.
