Competency Is Challenged In Management Of Estate
A hearing on whether a 42-year-old Belvedere woman who last week married a 32-year-old researcher at the University of California is competent to manage a $200,000 estate has been set in Marin Superior Court for May 29.
The brother of Kathryn Jean Lohman Smith, Sedward Beverly Lohman, a Standard Oil Co. executive who lives in Piedmont, has charged that she is not.
Lohman, who filed a petition asking to be named as conservator of the estate, has charged that his sister, now married to Moses Smith, is unable to “properly care for her property be (sic) reasons of illness, mental weakness, addition to drugs and other causes.”
The petition also charges that “by means of drugs and other causes she has been induced by one Moses Smith to purchase three parcels of property” and have the titles placed in his name.
The property at stake includes the expensive Belvedere resident (sic) where Mr. and Mrs. Smith now live at 8 Buckeye Road, property in Berkeley valued at $35,000 and a $27,000 parcel at Olema.
Lohman’s attorney, William O. Weissich, said yesterday out of court that since the petition was filed, Smith has deeded the property back to his new wife.
