Melbourne, Nov 27 (ANI): Millionaire socialite Valmai Roche has left her three daughters 1.50 dollars each from her 3.5-million-dollar estate because she believed they conspired over the death of her mother.
She left the same amount to her ex-husband, John Roche, a former property developer who was Adelaide City Council Lord Mayor from 1975-77.
The Advertiser reported that two of Roche's daughters said their mother was 'delusional' and they are challenging her will in the South Australian Supreme Court.
Before her death, Roche's mother, Dorothy Maud Haber, was being cared for in a nursing home. The documents do not say how or when she died.
Roche, who died last year aged 81, left '30 pieces of silver of the lowest denomination of currency' - or 30 five cent pieces - claiming it was 'blood money due to Judas' to each of her daughters and also 'specifically excluded' her daughters along with her husband from any further benefits from her estate, reports the Herald Sun.
The will left the remainder of her estate to the Knights of the Southern Cross - a Catholic charity for men. (ANI)
