Kansas City Lawyer Accused of Killing Her Father Loses Control Over His Will

Court FightAs I have previously discussed, the state has accused Kansas City Lawyer, Susan Elizabeth Van Note, with forgery and first-degree murder of her father, William Van Note. More specifically, the state alleges that Susan murdered her father by forgery his medical power of attorney to give her the right to refuse him life sustaining treatment. Now, a Clay County Probate Court has removed her "as the personal representative of her father's estate." At the moment, Van Note is out on a $1 Million bond.
