Sad story, but it doesn’t end there.

The Herald reports that just before Daniel Kerrigan died, Nancy’s brother Mark had a dispute with his father and “thought his dad was ‘faking it’ when he collapsed.” BH:

Mark Kerrigan, 45, now faces one count of assault and battery on a person over 60, according to Woburn District Court Clerk John Teeven.

It couldn’t get much worse for Kerrigan mom Brenda, who is now it appears looking to defend her son about what happened.

Nancy Kerrigan’s mother, Brenda Kerrigan , told the Herald this morning her husband died of a massive heart attack.

“My husband had a massive heart attack,” Brenda Kerrigan said. “This is a very difficult time for me.

“My God. He had a heart attack,” she added. “That’s what it was.”

The story is now splashed all over Boston, with photos and video of Mark Kerrigan getting cuffed by the cops.
