Perry March is behind bars awaiting trial. He's been charged with killing his wife, Janet March. Now prosecutors say there's a chance he didn't act alone.
Prosecutors have named Arthur March, Perry's father, as a possible co-conspirator. NewsChannel 5 first spoke with Arthur in August, just days after Perry was arrested. Tuesday, in an exclusive interview, Arthur March said he had nothing to do with Janet's disappearance.
"How could I dispose of a body when there is no body. You're assuming. The court is assuming there's a body. They can't even prove she's dead," said Arthur March.
"My comment is this," He went on. "I wasn't even in the (explicative) country. I didn't get there till she had been gone a week."
One theory suggests that Arthur did not help in the murder of Janet, but did arrive from Mexico later to assist in the disposal of her body.
In this exclusive interview, Arthur said that idea is ridiculous. "I'm not sure she's dead. Nobody's proved to me she's dead, only the courts. And I have very little faith in the judges in Nashville and Tennessee."
Arthur March said he's now helping Perry's second wife Carmen run the family restaurant in Ajijic, Mexico. He said he rarely gets to talk with Perry and may soon visit.
But, if he comes to Nashville, he said he'll come on his own accord. Arthur almost dares prosecutors to charge him in connection with the case.
"Well, I'm telling them if they (explicative) want to come down here and serve me, go ahead and see what happens."
Arthur would not elaborate other than to say that he certainly would not come willingly.
For now, he'll remain in Mexico, running the restaurant and putting together the funds needed to pay for his son's legal defense.
