59-807.Same; testamentary designees; granting letters testamentary. (a) When the will of a nonresident decedent designates one or more individuals or a qualified corporation as executor, letters testamentary shall be granted to any or all of the designees as in estates of resident decedents. If such designated individual or corporation has not applied in this state for such letters, any interested person may apply for the issuance of letters testamentary and, after reasonable notice to such individual or qualified corporation of such application, the manner and nature of which is to be determined by the court, and after hearing thereon, and if such individual or corporation be found unsuitable, incompetent, or unqualified, or does not qualify within seven days after being found by the court to be entitled thereto, then the court may issue letters testamentary with will annexed to such other person, persons or corporations as in this section provided.

(b) When the nonresident decedent dies intestate or dies testate and no letters testamentary are granted as in this section heretofore provided, then letters of administration, upon proper application by an interested person, may be granted to the following persons:

(1) To the husband or wife or to the nominee of the husband or wife who is an individual or a qualified corporation of this state;

(2) To one or more individuals who are entitled to distribution of the estate, whom the court shall believe will best manage and preserve the estate, or to a nominee of one or more of those entitled to distribution of the estate. Such nominee shall be an individual or a qualified corporation of this state.

(c) If proper application by an interested person for the issuance of letters, either to the applicant or otherwise, has been made, and if the court believes that no one of the persons otherwise entitled under this section to have letters issued to such person is a competent and suitable person, then the court may grant letters to some other person or to a qualified corporation of this state.
