Court scrambles to stop killer Gerard Baden-Clay from claiming his murdered wife’s estate

He’s legally entitled to everything.

The family of murder victim Allison Baden-Clay have asked a court to rule that her killer husband, Gerard, will not see a cent of her life insurance and superannuation payouts.

Gerard Baden-Clay is the executor and sole beneficiary on his late wife’s will and stands to inherit around $800,000 according to court documents reported by The Courier-Mail.

Allison’s father, Geoff Dickie, asked that instead he be made executor of Allison’s will and that the Supreme Court declare that Gerard ‘is not entitled to obtain or receive any benefit… from the death.’

Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder conviction was reinstated in August, 2016 after being briefly downgraded to manslaughter.

He’s currently serving life in prison, convicted with killing his wife in a fight at their Brookfield home in 2012 before dumping her body by a creek, where it was found 10 days later.
