Payments to debtor's parents on account of antecedent debt were avoidable.

Plaintiff, the chapter 7 trustee, filed an adversary complaint against defendants, the parents of the debtor wife, seeking to avoid and recover a transfer of $ 11,000 made by the debtors within ninety days before filing their bankruptcy petition.
