Any court of common pleas may compel a foreign administrator or executor residing in this state, or having assets or property in this state, to account at the suit of an heir, distributee, or legatee, who is resident in this state, and make distribution of the amount found in the possession or under the control of the foreign administrator or executor to the respective heirs, distributees, or legatees according to the law of the state granting the letters of administration. If suits are pending or there are unsettled demands against the estate, the court also may require a refunding bond to be given to the foreign executor or administrator by the heirs, distributees, or legatees entitled to that distribution in case the amount paid is needed to pay debts of the estate.
