Yes, Marc Toulouse, long-term 40-percent partner of Cary Underwood, killed his one-time school buddy. He was tried for murder and pleaded guilty by reason of insanity, but the jury didn’t buy that. Instead, he was convicted of manslaughter and is presently serving a 20-year sentence at California’s Lompoc Prison; under current California law, with good behavior, he is eligible for parole after serving half his sentence. You can send letters to Marc at Federal Correctional Institution Lompoc, 3600 Guard Rd, Lompoc, CA 93436. Marsha Underwood was charged with fraud in the mailing of a fake letter to herself that she claimed was from her missing husband, to fit with her assertion that he was not dead. You must remember that upon his death, all the vineyards would have become the property of Cary’s partner Marc. The judge was one of those compassionate ones who put Marsha on six months’ probation and sentenced her to two months community service, which is something Marsha did around Vichy Springs anyway. She was also ordered to pay an undisclosed sum (we know it, but we can’t disclose it) to Marc Toulouse for lost compensation. With Miguel dead, Cary dead, Marc in prison and Marsha on probation, David Underwood sold his real estate business, and with that money, bought out Marc and Marsha and is now the sole owner of Underwood Cellars, relying on the organizational skills of Elouise White and the salesmanship charm and business acumen of his new hire, Sandra Bellini.
