Two grandchildren of a deceased Alamance County woman have been awarded over $663,000 from their aunt who refused to give the grandchildren their respective share of the inheritance. The aunt, who served as executor of the estate, accused the her niece and nephew of theft and murder.
Issue in the case: did the executor (Aunt) perform her duties for the estate? Did the Aunt misappropriate money from the estate? Did the executor breach her fiduciary duty?
