The 80-acre Putnam County ranch where Atlanta attorney Claud “Tex” McIver married the woman he would eventually kill and that was at the heart of the couple’s dispute over who would inherit it goes on the auction block next month.

Ahlers & Ogletree—the Atlanta auction house that handled McIver’s sale of his wife’s designer clothing, antiques, furniture and collectibles just weeks after he fatally shot her on Sept. 25, 2016—has been hired by the estate  to conduct  an auction and tag sale that will take place Aug. 3-5.Georgia state Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver, D-Decatur, the court-appointed executrix of the  estate of McIver’s slain wife, Diane McIver, confirmed that she and McIver’s civil lawyers have agreed to sell the property at auction and liquidate the farm’s furnishings, equipment and personal effects.
