Woman in Bali murder gives up claim to mother’s estate

Heather Mack

CHICAGO — A Chicago woman imprisoned in Indonesia for killing her mother in 2014 in Bali has given up her claim to her mother’s estate.

The Chicago Tribune reports that court records show 22-year-old Heather Mack won’t receive “any property, benefit, or other interest” from Sheila von Wiese-Mack’s estate.

Mack’s daughter, Stella, will be the sole beneficiary of the estate.

Other details of the settlement filed this month are confidential.

Stella was born in prison in March 2015, shortly before her mother and Tommy Schaefer were convicted in the killing of von Wiese-Mack.

Schaefer was sentenced to 18 years in prison and Mack received a 10-year prison sentence. Authorities say Mack and Schaefer discussed killing von Weise-Mack in text messages.

An Australian woman in Bali has custody of Stella until Mack’s release.
