30-2-706. Scire facias against obligors in refunding bond Execution.

(a)  Where an executor or administrator has pleaded fully administered, no assets, or not sufficient assets to satisfy the plaintiff's or complainant's demand, and that plea has been found in favor of the defendant, and judgment has been recovered against the defendent, to be levied on the assets of the deceased, the creditor, on the creditor's motion, may have scire facias against the obligors in the bond, to show cause why execution should not be issued against them for the amount of the judgment.

(b)  If there is judgment against the defendants to scire facias, or any of them, execution may issue on the judgment against the proper goods and chattels, lands and tenements of the defendant or defendants.
