When probate goes deadly wrong….

Can you believe this?! When probate matters go deadly wrong…

Take a look at this recent, rather disturbing Michigan Court of Appeals case. Here, the court held that per Michigan statute, a killer or felon cannot profit from his or her wrongdoing. In this case, the estate holder’s son was convicted of bludgeoning him to death and as a result, the son’s benefits from the estate were revoked by the court.
