NEW YORK (AP) — Months after Montana copper mining heiress Huguette (hew-GEHT') Clark died in New York comes a big surprise: a will in which she leaves almost everything to her family — and a second will in which they get nothing.
The childless Clark died in May at age 104. On Monday, relatives filed a will signed in March 2005. It leaves much of her $400 million fortune to relatives.
But five months earlier, his lawyer and accountant filed another Clark will, this one from April 2005. It gives her family nothing and leaves her money mainly to charity and her nurse.
Clark's relatives accuse attorney Wallace Bock and accountant Irving Kamsler of plundering her fortune.
Bock's lawyer says Bock carried out Clark's wishes. A lawyer for Kamsler didn't immediately return a call.
