A year after a man was poisoned to death after winning the lottery, a judge is splitting his estate between his wife and daughter.

Urooj Khan won a million dollars from a scratch-off lottery ticket in May of 2012.

Two months later, he died of cyanide poisoning.

Wednesday’s settlement forbids Khan’s widow and daughter from pursuing wrongful death lawsuits, unless new evidence is uncovered in Khan’s death.

Nobody has been charged in the poisoning case.
