Ben Novack Jr. was found beaten to death in July in a suburban New York hotel room. His widow Narcy Novack stands to inherit the multimillion-dollar estate, which includes a vast collection of Batman memorabilia.
But Narcy Novack's daughter is taking legal steps to block the inheritance. May Abad (eh'-BAD) claims in court papers that her mother had something to do with Ben Novack's killing.
No charges have been filed but police call Narcy Novack a person of interest. Police also say Narcy Novack was deceptive on a lie detector test.
Attorneys are also trying to determine if some of the Batman collection is missing.
