I see no action that your ex-employer can take against you for helping out in your colleague's case unless, of course, you are untruthful. Yes, you can be obligated to cooperate further via subpoena; changing your mind has no effect on this.
In New York you cannot be forced to serve as executor if you are unwilling. As said, an executor is not liable for the debts of the estate. To the contrary, the executor is entitled to a fee for serving which generally comes off the top of the estate before most debts are paid.
