The attorney overseeing the estate of Emily Fazzino wants a judge to rule whether or not her husband caused her death.

Fazzino was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Boone home in January.

Her husband, Alexander Fazzino, claims she killed herself. But the investigation into her death, including the cause of death, is still open.

The Ames Tribune is reporting that Emily Fazzino died without a will.

The lawyer in charge of her estate wants a judge to determine if Alexander Fazzino was responsible for his wife’s death. If he was, he cannot be a beneficiary of her estate.
