Baden-Clay: Gerard blocked from Allison's super, insurance

CONVICTED killer Gerard Baden-Clay has been formally stripped of any right to his murdered wife Allison's estate.

Brisbane Supreme Court justice Peter Applegarth today declared Baden-Clay was not entitled to receive any benefit from his murdered wife's life insurance and superannuation policies.

Allison's father Geoff Dickie has now been granted the power to manage her estate.

Lawyers representing Baden-Clay said the move wasn't opposed.

The legal move to protect Allison Baden-Clay's estate follows last year's High Court decision to overturn an earlier Court of Appeal ruling that downgraded Baden-Clay's conviction from murder to manslaughter.

Baden-Clay was named as the executor in his wife's will. However Allison's father Geoff Dickie asked the court for full control so he could "finalise affairs of the estate".

"Gerard is disqualified from acting as the executor of the estate because he has been convicted of murdering her," Mr Dickie wrote in documents viewed by The Courier-Mail.
