(Newser) – Mark Kerrigan—now charged with assault following the sudden death of his father—was sued by his parents over money in March 2008. Daniel and Brenda Kerrigan claimed to have loaned their son—who was in jail at the time on an assault charge—$105,000 for his mortgage and expenses ranging from credit card bills to cat food. He then “failed, refused and neglected to make full payment upon demand,” according to court papers; the parents' attorney said the issue was resolved that December.

Mark pleaded not guilty to assaulting his father yesterday and is being held on bail, the Boston Herald adds. Meanwhile, fellow figure skaters are reaching out to Mark's sister, Nancy: Paul Wylie tells People that she's “really struggling," while Kristi Yamaguchi said Kerrigan texted her to thank her for the support. Even Tonya Harding, Nancy’s most infamous rival, released a statement telling the Insider she is “very sad for Nancy. She understands the grief Nancy and her family are feeling at this difficult time. ”
