Court filing from Julie Schenecker's ex-husband raises possibility of lawsuit

TAMPA — Parker Schenecker, who sent his then-wife Julie Schenecker to rehab at a Clearwater facility months before she shot and killed their two children, has broached the possibility of filing a civil claim against the center.

In a recent circuit court filing listing Windmoor Healthcare as the potential defendant, Parker Schenecker petitioned for an extension of the statute of limitations to look into any potential claims "arising out of the negligence by the above named defendant and any other individuals/entities that may have been involved in the care or treatment of Julie Schenecker."

He did not file suit, but rather asked the court for 90 days to consider it.

"There were substantial facts presented at trial that had not previously been communicated to Mr. Schenecker, even though he had asked numerous times to be part of his ex-wife's care," his spokeswoman said in a statement Friday.

Julie received care at Windmoor in November 2011 for alcoholism at Parker's insistence. She said she had told him she needed psychiatric care — not detoxification.

A jury convicted her this month of two counts of first-degree murder for killing son Beau and daughter Calyx.
