Ohio doctor arrested in 1982 slaying

December 21, 2007


— A doctor living in Ohio was arrested on a charge that he beat his boss to death when he was a chef in New Jersey 25 years ago.

George Carty, now 49, appeared in court here Thursday on a charge of aggravated manslaughter. He then quickly exited court with prosecutors and his public defender, who didn't immediately return calls for comment.

A future arraignment date had not immediately been set; Carty remained held on $500,000 bail.

The doctor, who lives in the Cleveland suburb of Richmond Heights, was arrested Tuesday and waived extradition.

In the early 1980s, Carty and John Attenborough worked as chefs at Wildwood Golf and Country Club in Middle Township.

The 57-year-old Attenborough was in charge. Carty, then 24, was his assistant.

Attenborough's body was found next to his car near a construction site. Authorities have not said why he may have been killed.

Robert Keating, then a bartender and now general manager at the club, told the Press of Atlantic City for Thursday's newspapers that both men drank heavily. And when he was drinking, Keating said, Attenborough became belligerent and bossed Carty around.
