If she is convicted, she can take no benefit under the Will. Unless

I wonder to what extent his will will be affected by the swiftly
following death of his son and heir?
is that technically the Countess inherits; that is if she hasn't been
convicted of being an accomplice to his murder.
the Will makes some alternative provision, the estate would then go as
on intestacy, which means equal division between his children. His
eldest son's share then goes according to the provision of *his* Will
(or the relevant intestacy rules, if he left none). That means that
the tax man takes two large slices, rather than one.
