The family of Keaira Bennefield — the upstate New York mom-of-three allegedly executed by her estranged ex-con husband — is mulling a lawsuit against authorities who released her ex under the state’s lenient no-cash bail laws, their lawyer told The Post.

“The family feels authorities dropped the ball here, resulting in a heinous violent act and the murder of a daughter, sister and grandchild,” John Froman, attorney, commented on the potential wrongful-death suit.

Bennefield, 30, was allegedly ambushed and shot execution-style by Adam Bennefield as she took her kids to school on Oct. 5 — less than 24 hours after he was sprung on no bail over a caught-on-camera beatdown she’d posted to her Facebook page in a desperate plea for help.

“If bail reform was not in place, this individual would have never been released,” he said of Bennefield’s abusive spouse.

Three days before her death, she spoke out to the Cheektowaga police. “I thought I was going to die” During the harrowing Sept. 28 attack at her home.

Froman told The Post he’s in the early stages of the legal investigation and wasn’t yet sure whether the suit would take aim at state authorities or local law enforcement — or both.

He said that he had already discovered disturbing red flags.

“The whole issue is should this guy have been on the street,” Froman. 

“Policing authorities had evidence that wasn’t shared with the DA’s office that would have resulted in him being remanded,” Without expounding, the attorney said.

Meanwhile, Bennefield’s grieving mom, Tammy Hudson, slammed the Empire State’s pro-criminal bail reform laws — and Gov. Kathy Hochul’s support of them.

“[Hochul] should be charged for the crime. She’s also responsible for the crime,” Hudson previously spoke to The Post in Buffalo from her home.

Now that Hochul won a full term in Tuesday’s election, Hudson and her family are pleading with the governor to approve legislation that better compensates relatives in wrongful death cases, including ones that happened under New York’s no-cash bail laws, Froman said.

“They are strongly encouraging Hochul to sign the Grieving Families Act which is sitting on her desk,” He said. The state bill It would significantly increase the financial costs of emotional anguish.

Hochul spokeswoman said Hochul is “reviewing the legislation,” This was approved by the Senate in June.

Hochul repeatedly supported no-cashbail, claiming that it would help to fix racial or class inequalities in the justice system.

Even after her surprisingly close win over Republican Lee Zeldin — who campaigned heavily on cleaning up crime — the Democrat appeared be in no rush to reform the state’s controversial laws.

“I will take the time with my team, and people in Criminal Justice Services, my advisors and my legal team to come up with any way we think we can improve public safety,” Hochul spoke in Puerto Rico on Thursday, where she attended an annual conference for New York Democrats.

According to the NYPD’s latest data, crime in New York City has risen by 29% since November 6. The number of robberies and felony assaults has risen by two-digits.

Bennefield, who had been begging cops for protection from her husband for several weeks prior to her death, was convicted in a previous case of kidnapping another ex at gunpoint.

Adam Bennefield, however, was only charged with misdemeanors such as third-degree attack, fourth-degree criminal malchief, second degree menacing, or second-degree unlawful imprisonment.

The judge was unable to set bail because of the low-level charges. Following the shooting, he was arrested for second-degree murder.

Bennefield pleaded guilty to murder, aggravated crime contempt, and three counts endangering the welfare a child at his Oct. 21 arraignment.
