    Alan died intestate in 2015. He had no children, parents or spouse. He did, however, have two siblings, Neil and Jennifer. Neil has two children, Martin and Stacy. Martin was convicted of Neil's manslaughter in January 2016. Martin had four children (Neil's grandchildren). [to me this means that Neil would, as Alan's sibling, have inherited but as Martin killed him, prevented him from doing so]

    If the forfeiture apply rules to Martin, how can he claim a share in Alan's estate? This is really confusing me, I cannot find anything on this and I'm stressing over it.

    Thank you to anyone who can help me - I will be forever indebted to you!
