Disgraced Minnesota auto mogul Denny Hecker's ex-wife Tamitha has agreed to settle for a fraction of what she had sought from her jailed ex-husband, the Pioneer Press reports.
Hecker's fourth wife had sought $15 million as part of her divorce settlement, citing their prenuptial agreement, although her former husband disputed the claim, the newspaper reports. The deal is subject to approval by a bankruptcy judge.
The two were married 15 years but divorced in 2009, not long after Hecker filed for personal bankruptcy, with creditors saying he owed $767 million.
Hecker has also had divorce settlement disputes with his second wife, Sandra. The former multi-millionaire went to jail in 2010 over $5,000 he owed her.
Hecker, 61, is now serving a 10-year sentence for bankruptcy fraud and for lying to creditors stemming from his former Twin Cities auto empire.
Hecker has been moved from prison to prison – he landed at his ninth facility in 14 months in April, a minimum-security prison in Littleton, Colo.
Hecker married his fifth wife, Christi Rowan-Hecker, via phone in February 2011 while he was incarcerated, She told WCCO that the two were made for each other.
