Despite a court ruling last month that the father of murdered woman Allison Baden-Clay had control of her estate, there are questions still over a large sum of money.
The Federal court heard this week it was unclear if Allison’s life insurance policies were considered estate assets.
More than $800,000 was paid out following her murder but the funds remain frozen until the court decision is made.
The family have now launched a final attempt to prevent her killer, husband Gerard, from benefitting from her life insurance policies.
Gerard Baden-Clay was convicted of murdering his wife Allison in 2012.
He was handed a life sentence with a non-parole period of 15 years.
He was also listed as the sole beneficiary of both policies belonging to his wife before her murder.
Her family made an application before the courts in February to prevent him getting a cent of her money, with a judge ruling in favour of the family.
Gerard didn’t oppose the previous application to block him from the estate.
The next hearing will take place on May 8.
Allison’s family have worked to honour her name since her death, starting the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation for domestic violence support.
