For that purpose he must file in the court in which the will was proved a sworn petition in writing containing his allegations, that evidence discovered since the probate of the will, the material facts of which must be set forth, shows:

1. That a will of a later date than the one proved by the decedent, revoking or changing the will, has been discovered, and is offered; or

2. That some jurisdictional fact was wanting in the probate; or

3. That the testator was not competent, free from duress, menace, fraud, or undue influence when the will allowed was made; or 4. That the will was not duly executed and attested.
