Assuming this is true, which is highly unlikely since most wills are drafted or reviewed by a lawyer and must have witnesses of execution in order to be probated, you need to challenge this stat. A contract, which is part of what a will is, is immediately invalid if a required provision is illegal. Committing assault most definitely falls under that definition. Anyone tasked with "reading" the will should already know this as it's one of the fundamental basics of contract law. You have grounds not only for having the will thrown out, but for a hefty lawsuit against anyone involved in the probate and handling of the estate.
