He must have thought it was a dead cert but an Adelaide funeral director stands accused of faking deaths for insurance payouts - making false claims totalling $430,000.
The man, named as Robin George Knight, 45, is charged with 118 counts of fraud and one of attempted fraud between 2008 and 2013 when he was the director of Knight Brenton James Funeral Directors in Para Hills West.
