Can a caregiver be named as the beneficiary in a Will?

Question Details:

My mother passed away and my brother is the executor of the Will and we are both named as the sole heirs of her estate. However a neighbor of hers, who was acting as a caregiver got her to sign a handwritten Will on her death bed naming her as the beneficiary of her mobile home. She also removed items from my mothers home prior to my arrival and will not return them.
