SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The legal proceedings following the killing of Raveesh "Ravi" Kumra - a wealthy Silicon Valley venture capitalist killed in a brutal home-invasion robbery of his Monte Sereno mansion- are taking an odd twist, with a former exotic dancer asking a court for monthly support and a petition with the court seeking half his estate.
The San Jose Mercury News reports that Keila Goggins is asking a judge to recognize her claim that Kumra fathered her two daughters - ages 7 and 9.
Goggins told the newspaper in a telephone interview Friday from her out-of-state home that she met Kumra in 2001 through a friend who worked with her as a prostitute in Carson City, Nev.
In a response, Kumra's two older daughters - both in their 30s - said in legal documents that their father had no financial obligation to the children.
