Melvin Lane Powers was an American businessman who was best known for his alleged role in the murder of Jacques Mossler, his uncle by marriage. Prosecutors claimed that Powers and Aunt Candy were lovers and that they had conspired to kill her husband in order to acquire his fortune. Attorney Percy Foreman was able to convince the jury to disregard the evidence presented against his client. Powers and his aunt were acquitted and no other persons were ever charged with the murder.
