It seems like you could challenge the validity of the will based on undue influence and lack of mental capacity, if he took her out of hospice to sign the will very soon before her death. Also, if the will does not allow him to reside on the property or take it, then you can get him out of there possibly by just calling the sheriff as a trespasser. More information would be needed to know exactly where to go from here though.
