    In what state did this take place and what damages did you suffer as a result of her death? It may be that it would be her estate that would have a claim against his, not you.

    Although you didn't say who "he" is, anyone can sue anyone for anything (although Ohio law requires that a wrongful death suit be brought by the personal representative of the decedent's estate for the benefit of the surviving spouse, children, etc.).

    Were you financially dependent on your mother? Did the killer have significant assets such that a wrongful death suit against his estate would be worthwhile?

    What a useful response! How about telling the OP what additional info is needed?
