Bruce M. DiCicco examines approaches taken around the country to the question of denying inheritance rights to wrongdoers who are mentally incompetent.

What's being said

  • Bruce: Well written and insightful. Great article on inheritance rights by those who lead to one‘s demise. Florida has a "slayer statute" which prohibits one who leads to or causes the death of another to NOT inherit. Fla. Stat. 732.802. The words which the Florida Probate Statute use are "unlawfully and intentionally kills or participates in procuring the death of the decedent".
