Narcy Novack, the widow of slain Fort Lauderdale millionaire Ben Novack Jr., has been given control of his estate, worth more than $10 million.
Broward County Probate Judge Charles M. Greene agreed Monday to dismiss a suit filed by relatives who wanted to block her from access to Novack's fortune.
Lawyers for the relatives asked for the dismissal without predjudice, which means they can file another challenge to the will at a later date. The lawyers, Stephen J. McDonald and Bill Crawford, did not say why they made the request.
The lawsuit sought to have Narcy Novack removed as executrix under the state's slayer statute, arguing that she murdered her late husband. Under the statute, a killer cannot inherit the victim's estate.
Narcy Novack, 53, is a suspect in the slaying, but has not been charged.
