*The decedent Edward J. Wilhelm had a debilitating visual condition during his confinement in care facilities. A Trust was made between Wesbanco and Wilhelm in 2002 but terminated by the defendant. The defendant, as Attorney In Fact, counseled and took complete authority over decedent's property. The probate estate of decedent totaled approximately $494,000. Had the descendant not rewritten his Will, five weeks prior to his death, the plaintiffs, as natural heirs, would have inherited the entirety of his estate. Plaintiffs allege the Last Will and Testament was not signed in conformity with WV law. The Will should not have been admitted to probate and this action seeks to declare it void.
