Convicted killer could inherit victim's assets - CNN

Convicted killer could inherit victim's assets - CNN: "A man imprisoned for killing his mother-in-law in 2008 could soon inherit his victim's assets, valued at a minimum of $250,000, authorities said.

The strange twist of fate was made possible after the death of Deanna Palladino, wife of convicted killer Brandon Palladino and sole inheritor of her slain mother's assets, according to Suffolk County court documents."

  1. This is a really maddening outcome. However, it should be noted that he's not inheriting directly from his victim. Such a result would be impossible under the laws of almost every state in the U.S.

    He's inheriting from his late wife, how happened to have recently inherited a fortune from his victim. Still unfair, but it's also not a situation that so-called "slayer statutes" could have anticipated.
