Elderly Conn. Sisters Battle In Court Over $500K Lottery Jackpot


Two elderly sisters from Connecticut who are fighting over a $500,000 lottery jackpot are headed to court for a trial.

Eighty-four-year-old Theresa Sokaitis of Middletown and 87-year-old Rose Bakaysa of Plainville are expected in New Britain Superior Court on Tuesday morning.

Sokaitis is suing for a share of a $500,000 Powerball jackpot that Bakaysa and their brother, Joseph Troy Sr., won in 2005.

Sokaitis says she had a written contract with her sister to split gambling winnings from lotteries and casino games they often played together. But Bakaysa’s lawyer says the contract ended when the sisters had a falling out before the Powerball ticket was purchased.
