Your wife can file a claim in probate court to contest her step-father's will. However, the burden will be on her to prove that her father in law was either not mentally competent when he changed his original will to the current one, or that he was unduly influenced and/or coerced into changing the will. If her will contest is successful, the court will determine that the original will is still in force.
