Re: Double Shock episode: who gets the money? what happens to the maid?

I’m no lawyer, but I believe that the next of kin of the murdered fiancée would inherit. It’s very strange that the brothers murdered her and framed the lawyer. There was only one other copy of the will and the lawyer was getting it from her. He agreed to destroy it in exchange for legal services which they would need anyway. By killing her and framing him their whole plan was blown. It was a bizarre plot twist.

Did I miss something?
