INDISPENSABLE EVIDENCE — STATUTE OF FRAUDS
9-502. Wills to be in writing. A last will and testament, except a nuncupative will, is invalid unless it be in writing and executed with such formalities as are required by law. When, therefore, such a will is to be shown, the instrument itself must be produced, or secondary evidence of its contents be given.
