Tony Packo's grandson, company controller stand trial on theft charges

Opening statements were given Friday in the trial of Tony Packo's grandson and the company's controller.
Tony Packo, III and Cathleen Dooley are accused of stealing more than a quarter million dollars from the hot dog eatery made famous on the TV series "M-A-S-H".
Prosecutors say the two worked together to steal the money over a four year peroid. But defense attorneys argue the charges are untrue and stem from a family feud over control of the company.
The restaurant chain was sold earlier this year.
