Brittany Murphy had a will drawn up and executed before she met husband Simon Monjack, and it stipulates that her estate be left to her mother, Sharon Murphy, according to a report.

Murphy’s house was held in trust, and Monjack is not listed on the title, according to

Executing a will involves signing it in the presence of witnesses and having it notarized. Wills can be amended after they are executed, but it’s not clear whether or not Murphy revised hers after marrying Monjack in May 2007.

Murphy, 32, died of cardiac arrest on Sunday. Her mother found her collapsed in the bathroom and called 911. The death is under investigation by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Autopsy results are pending. Foul play is not suspected.
