Decades ago, Alice and Gerald Uden murdered their spouses to be with each other and dumped their corpses in mine shafts according to the February 3, 2014 edition of People. Their crimes were only recently discovered. Do their families have any recourse against them? In Louisiana, survivors of a murdered spouse may be able to revoke gifts made by a victim to the spouse. Cruel treatment, if especially cruel, may enable the injured spouse to reclaim gifts. If you have given your spouse gifts and now find yourself the victim of his or her cruelty, you should consult with a lawyer concerning your rights.
