School shooter may get inheritance � and be ordered to spend it on legal bills

MIAMI — Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz appears to have been in line for a sizable inheritance. He'll never get to spend it — except perhaps on defense attorneys. The amount could be enough to compel a judge to order him to hire a private lawyer rather than be represented by the taxpayer-funded Broward County Public Defender's Office.
