In an on-going English court case one brother has accused the other of coercing their mother into leaving him the majority of her estate, reports the Telegraph.
In a will signed in 2006, Jessica Schrader, who died two years later at the age of 98, left her home to her eldest son, Nick. Her younger son, Bill, received only a bequest of comparatively little worth.
According to the Telegraph, the dispute revolves around whether Mrs Schrader had been unduly influenced by Nick Schrader. Alternatively, argues Bill Schrader, she must have lacked the legal capacity to make a valid will, as it represented a radical departure from the fairness and even-handedness with which she had always treated her sons.
Nick Schrader denies the accusation, and the case continues.
