Judge upholds Karoly will

EASTON, Pa. -

A judge has upheld a ruling in favor of a prominent-and disgraced-local  lawyer,and his dead brother's will.  

Northampton County President Judge Kimberly McFadden says there  is no proof  that attorney John Karoly forged the wills of his brother Peter and Peter's  wife Lauren.

The two were killed in a plane crash back in 2007.

Karoly's sisters claimed that the wills had been *forged*..but back in August.. a judge ruled that the sisters had failed to prove  the documents were fake.    

John Karoly is currently serving a 6-year jail sentence for tax evasion, mail fraud and money laundering.
