A lady testifies in court that her sister murdered her husband, but the judge rules that the sister cannot be punished. Why? Siamese twins, the sisters are. They was born joined at the waist. If you cut one of them up, then you got to cut the other one too.
This is what happens when you get testimony from someone who is not sure which sister did it. The judge knows this and says that both sisters will go free because there's no way to tell which one committed the murder. This example shows us that you can't find out anything new by asking questions. The only thing you can learn about someone's guilt or innocence is what they already told you. Sometimes people change their stories for reasons that have nothing to do with truth or falsehood - for example, if they think it will help their case or hurt another person's.
In conclusion, yes, a woman can prove that her sister killed her husband. But she can't be punished because there's no way to know which one of them did it.
It is against God's law for a woman to marry her sister's spouse. It is unchangeable; man cannot destroy it. 18. Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister to vex her or expose her nakedness in her lifetime. 19. The brother-wife relationship is very special because it is based on faith in Christ. Both women share their husband with other women through marriage (see 1 Cor 7 for more information).
Your brother-in-law is your sister's husband. As a result, your sister-in-law is the husband's sister. This is also known as the female relative on the male side. The word "sister-in-law" is used rather than the word "wife" because there is already one wife in the family structure.
In English, the word "brother-in-law" can be used to refer to any brother of your spouse. Thus, it is possible to say that John's wife Mary has two brothers-in-laws: her own husband John and her sister Diane. In this case, "sister-in-law" would only apply to Diane.
The word "sister-in-law" comes from the Latin words sicher (thus) and filia (daughter). Thus, it means "someone who shares the same father but not necessarily the same mother"; or, more broadly, "a female sibling."
Siblings share 50% of their genes, while spouses share 100%. This means that siblings are less similar to each other than spouses are.
After refusing a stay of execution to another defendant, the judge opens a trial for Helen Jones, a young lady suspected of murdering her husband. Under direct inquiry from him, the young woman claims she did not murder her spouse. While she was in bed with him, she alleges she observed two guys beat him over the head. She only intervened after one of the men dropped his gun.
She is found guilty and sentenced to death. Before they execute her, however, her father comes up with $10,000 so she can hire an attorney. The lawyer gets her sentence commuted to life imprisonment at San Quentin State Prison. While there, she gives birth to a son.
Several years later, her father hires a detective to check on her health. When he arrives at the prison, he is shocked to see that she has been released! Upon questioning, it turns out that Judge Lynch had been murdered before he could carry out his plan to hang Helen Jones. The murderer had stolen his key ring with keys to every cell in the prison. He is never caught.
Helen goes back home and lives with her son until she dies of pneumonia several months later. Her son also dies soon after.
As you can see, Helen killed her husband by hitting him over the head with a heavy object during an attack from behind. This made his skull fracture lethal.
The Deceased Wife's Sister's Marriage Act 1907 (7 Edw. 7 c. 47) was a United Kingdom Parliament Act that allowed a man to marry his deceased wife's sister, which had previously been prohibited. Before this act, the marriage of a woman to more than one husband at the same time was not legally valid. She could only have one husband at a time.
This act came into force on 1 January 1908. It had been proposed by Sir Edward Henry James, Bt, who had introduced it into the House of Commons. He said that the law as it stood "was based upon an age-old prejudice against marrying your brother's widow", and claimed that many people had married under its terms. The act was passed in response to these claims.
In England and Wales, this act allows a widow to marry her deceased husband's brother if they were born into the same family or adopted together. They do not have to be alive when the husband dies for this marriage to be legal. If the brother has already married before the widow marries him, then the previous marriage must be declared null and void by a court order called a "liberation certificate".
In Scotland, the marriage of a woman to her deceased husband's brother is legal provided they were born of the same parents and lived together as husband and wife.
If the brother's wife and son are still living, the sister cannot claim her brother's property. However, if the brother is deceased and unmarried, the law provides for the brother's portion of property to be distributed to his living brothers and sisters. The estate of a deceased sibling can also have inheritance tax applied to it.
A married sister cannot claim her brother's property. If the brother is dead, a married sister can claim her share of the estate.
In England and Wales there is an exception to this rule in cases where there are no children from the marriage, but only siblings. In that case, the married sister would receive half of her brother or sister's estate: that is, one-quarter of the estate goes to the husband or father, and three-quarters go to the sister or brother.
In America, this exception does not exist. In order for a married sister to receive anything, her husband must consent to the distribution of their brother's or sister's estate. If he does not want the estate distributed, then she cannot receive any part of it.
In addition, there is an exception related to intestate estates (those without a will). If a married person dies without leaving a will, then according to Illinois law, his or her spouse becomes eligible to inherit all of his or her property.
