Guam - Recognizing an increase in crime on the island Senator Frank Aguon Jr has introduced Bill 247 in hopes of tightening the belt and eliminating the loop holes found in the current Guam's Slayer statute.
He said, "It doesn't define specifically estate and property and it doesn't include financial benefit plans such as 401(k)'s and that where we wanted to make sure we close the loop and we included everything out there."
Senator Aguon says the measure would prevent an individual who commits a murder from benefiting directly by not allowing them to receive an inheritance from their victim. He adds that Bill 247 was formulated after another jurisdiction and side adapted to Guam with provisions that include financial plans and properties.
