A local court ruled that a 70-year-old woman whose deceased husband left multiple wills should inherit his 374,000 yuan ($60,101) investment account and half of their home on Nanjing Road West, Jing'an District People's Court said Friday.
The woman, whom the court called Zhang Qian, was sued in May 2012 by her husband's three sons, according to a court press release. In their lawsuit, the sons demanded their father's investment money, the house and the rest of their father's property.
Their father, surnamed Lin, married Zhang in October 1999 after his first wife passed away in 1995. Before he died in July 2011, Lin left four wills behind, some of which were contradictory.
In June 2001 and May 2002, Lin wrote two wills that he later had notarized, according to the press release. In both wills, Lin left Zhang the balance of his investment account and his house on Nanjing Road West, which he and Zhang bought together.
