4 B.B. King daughters raise possibility of 'missing' will

LAS VEGAS — Four of B.B. King's daughters are raising the possibility that he has a second will, and they're again accusing the blues legend's longtime business manager of stealing his wealth and endangering his health in the days before he died.

A lawyer for Patty King, Karen Williams, Rita Washington and Barbara Winfree filed documents in probate court in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

The papers stop short of previous allegations that LaVerne Toney and another aide poisoned B.B. King. But they allege Toney is unqualified to be the executor of King's estate.

The daughters accuse Toney of denying King proper medical care, and of changing the locks at his Las Vegas home so that he died May 14 with no family or friends with him.

Arguments are scheduled in court Friday on the allegations.
