murderer inherits

She murdered her husband but still might inherit his $1.2m estate
Connecticut law (apparently like other states') has an absolute bar to inheritance only if ya killed the bequeather by 1st or 2nd degree murder. So, theoretically, if you kill a spouse merely by "manslaughter," you're still eligible to cash in, with the decision left up to a probate judge. (The judge might be disinclined to allow this one, seein' as how her methodology was to douse her Mr. Right with gasoline and set him on fire.) Stamford Advocate

This is why I intend on staying poor. I will give no one any benefits from killing me. Well, maybe just to shut me up, but that's other benefits.

What, exactly, is "intentional first-degree manslaughter"? We're all bitchin' about via and a few extra rs then I read that convoluted, semantic abortion!

Gary - you know better than to commit a crime in Texas. You'll be given the death penalty for everything.

Maxx - still a pretty good benefit, depending on who you ask (at least in my case; I'm pretty sure the hubby would off me just to get me to shut up!)

If he cheated on her it's justifiable homicide

Jules - Justifiable Homicide? just for sampling other fruits. And what if he only did the nasty with the other women but did not give them love. Thats not cheating.
