 A beneficiary IRA must be titled in the decedent's name for the benefit of the beneficiary. However, there's not a single, specific format for the name.The titling of an inherited IRA can vary from one IRA custodian to another. The deceased IRA owner's name must remain on the inherited IRA account title and the account title must indicate that it is an inherited IRA by using the word “beneficiary” or “beneficiary IRA” or “inherited IRA.

what is the specific TT question as the IRA must be in either yours or your spouses name with the decedents as above.

To be reportable on your tax return, the payee shown on the Form 1099-R must be you or your wife.
Is the payee someone other than you or your wife?
Is this Form 1099-R reporting a distribution made before or after your mother-in-law's death?
