The wife of a recently deceased West Virginia man has filed suit against Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort, claiming that her husband’s gambling addiction caused him to commit suicide.

Stacy Stevens alleges her husband, Scott Stevens, shot himself on August 13, 2012, after he drained his family’s savings accounts to feed his gambling habit.

Scott Stevens had become addicted to slot machines and embezzled more than $7 million from the company where he was CFO. He was fired when he confessed to taking the money, according to the complaint filed Aug. 7 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.
