Irena Opalinska Can Inherit Steven Chaban’s Property
Illinois Appels Court rules that a woman who lied under oath during her mother’s murder investigation is eligible to inherit her victim’s property. Cook County Public Administrator David Epstein had claimed her inheritance would indirectly benefit her husband who later stood trial and was found guilty.
Justice Cynthia Cobbs issued a 13-page opinion rejecting that argument.
