WVC 42 - 5 - 3
§42-5-3. Joint tenants or tenants by the entirety.
Where there is no sufficient evidence that two joint tenants
or tenants by the entirety have died otherwise than
simultaneously the property so held shall be distributed one half
as if one had survived and one half as if the other had survived.
If there are more than two joint tenants and all of them have so
died the property thus distributed shall be in the proportion
that one bears to the whole number of joint tenants.
