One in Every Generation

We are discussing In re estate of Mahoney, in which the court addresses the question of whether a spouse who comes into inheritance of his or her spouse’s estate by dint of murdering said spouse should be barred from inheriting the property. The professor keeps referring to the murdering spouse as “The Slayer”, which, of course, brings visions of Sarah Michelle Gellar sitting in the defendant’s chair. “Who qualifies as a Slayer?” “What do you need for the court to invoke Slayer status on you?”
