A bank account -- even under on spouse's name -- is communal property in a marriage unless otherwise stated in a prenuptial agreement or something similar. If Summer Worden (McLain's estranged wife) wanted McLain to no longer have legal access to that account, then she should have closed it or took some other measure to protect it.

Granted, the two are separated, so that might be considered a factor, but just a separation doesn't necessarily make it illegal for one spouse to look at the bank account of another spouse. Other steps would often need to be taken to keep one spouse from the bank account of another, even in a separation.

Summer Worden is certainly entitled to make the accusation that McLain did wrong, and because she made an accusation it should be investigated, but Worden's accusation may not have a legal leg to stand on and the investigation may go nowhere.

No.
The proper thing to do is to keep their name on the account so their paychecks can be deposited into it, changed the passwords to the electronic banking service and make sure they cant discover the password. And if necessary, keeps such shoddy records of what you spend when and where, what is left outstanding that might not show if they do get into it that they will be afraid to spend any money out of it lest if put the balance in the negative..
