Question

Ms. Lingenfelter’s will was offered for probate and was opposed. The Ms. Lingenfelter (the testatrix) testatrix was sick, highly nervous, and extremely jealous, and she committed suicide a week after executing the will. She had, however, seemed to understand the will when she discussed it with an attorney. The will disinherited her husband because she feared he was not faithful to her despite the fact that he was seriously ill when she wrote the will. He died the day after she executed the will, and she grieved his death terribly for one week before committing suicide. Did she have the capacity to make a will? Should it be admitted to probate? [In re Lingenfelter’s Estate, 241 P.2d 990 (Cal.)]
