OSECEOLA COUNTY, F.L. (AP) – A physical therapist charged with killing his wife, three children and dog in a home near Walt Disney World was being investigated for health care fraud in Connecticut.

Documents unsealed Wednesday in federal court in Connecticut show Anthony Todt was being investigated by federal agents for submitting fraudulent claims for physical therapy.

According to agents, the allegations involved Todt and his Colchester, Connecticut-base clinics submitting claims to Medicaid and private insurers for physical therapy services that weren’t given to patients.

Todt was charged Wednesday with the deaths of his wife, Megan, and their three children ranging in ages from 4 to 13.
