NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man imprisoned for killing his wife after she filed for divorce is questioning where the $25,000 he was ordered to pay in restitution is going.

James Robarge was ordered to pay the money to the Victims’ Compensation Program for his wife Kelly’s funeral and counseling for his daughters and grandson.

His attorney Alex Parsons said in court Wednesday that his client isn’t disputing the amount. Parson says Robarge wants to see how the money was spent under due process rights.

Prosecutors say that information is a violation of the victims’ privacy.

A judge will issue a ruling on whether the state needs to release more information on a date yet to be determined.

Robarge is serving a 30-year prison sentence for his wife’s death in 2013.
