Tracy Nells, wife and biological niece of the late orchardist Timothy McNamara is accused of murdering him at their home in Belize. McNamara made her a beneficiary in his will, promising her land and money from his insurance policy. Her cousins filed a lawsuit wanting the transfer cancelled.

The Grant County Superior Court Judge John Knodell ruled that there was no evidence to prove McNamara was wrongfully persuaded by Nessl, who collected $2 million in property and money from McNamara between 2012 and 2014.
