SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Attorneys for families suing a South Carolina man accused in a number of killings are examining whether his recently deceased mother disposed of any of his assets while she had power of attorney.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2oIN4yK ) that plaintiffs’ attorney have the ability to sue the estate of 70-year-old Regina Tague, who died Sunday, if the court-appointed receiver now overseeing the assets finds she transferred or dissolved any property after Todd Kohlhepp’s arrest.

Forty-six-year-old Kohlhepp is charged with seven murders and faces several civil lawsuits, many for wrongful death and personal injury claims. Tague is included as a third-party defendant in some lawsuits.

R. Mills Ariail Jr., an attorney for one of the victim’s families, says Tague’s name will remain on the lawsuits for now.

Tague’s attorney Albert Smith declined to say if Tague had moved any assets.
