ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - The daughter of a prominent Aspen woman who was bludgeoned to death has reached a settlement deal in the wrongful-death claim she filed against the convicted killer’s widow.

The Aspen Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1UFLXeH ) that attorneys filed a motion Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Massachusetts that calls for Juliana Pfister to receive $850,000, the bulk of the $1 million life-insurance benefit Nancy Masson received after her husband William Styler killed himself in prison. The motion still needs approval from a judge.

Styler killed 57-year-old Nancy Pfister on Feb. 24, 2014, striking her with a hammer while she slept. Nancy Pfister’s parents co-founded the Buttermilk ski area.

Juliana Pfister sued Masson in February, claiming Masson helped her husband in the murder and that she is profiting from a book about the case.

Masson filed for bankruptcy last year.
