Jett Travolta Extortion Case Set for Trial: Prosecutors

Months after the heartbreaking death of John Travolta and Kelly Preston's teenage son, prosecutors say they are set to go to trial in the alleged plot to profit from the family's loss.

Jett Travolta, 16, died after he suffered a seizure in January at the family's vacation home on Grand Bahama -- and now officials say they have compiled enough evidence to make a case against a duo who tried allegedly to extort $25 million from the Travolta family, E! online reported

Former Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater and paramedic Tarino Lightbourne face charges stemming from their alleged efforts to use a "refusal to transport" form to imply that the Travolta family didn't do all they could to save their beloved son, according to E!.

The close-knit family -- including daughter Ella Bleu -- is still coping with the loss of Jett.

"[The family is] regrouping and pushing through the grieving process," a source told People in February. "They are trying to grieve and return to some sort of normalcy for Ella."

"But life isn't normal without Jett," the insider said.

The Travoltas spent Easter in Fiji and spent three days in Brisbane, the Courier-Mail of Australia reported.
