Vegas Judge: No Evidence Bluesman B.B. King Is Being Abused

Thursday, 07 May 2015 03:50 PM

A dispute over B.B. King's health and wealth has been tossed out of court by a judge in Las Vegas who says two investigations found no evidence the blues legend is being abused.

King's doctor says the 89-year-old musician is in home hospice care.

Thursday's ruling keeps King's longtime business manager, Laverne Toney, in legal control of King's affairs.

Three of King's 11 surviving children say they suspect Toney is stealing money and neglecting King's medical care.

But Clark County Family Court Hearing Master Jon Norheim says police and social services investigations in October and April uncovered no reason to take power-of-attorney from Toney.

The judge says he can't consider daughter Karen Williams' petition to take over as King's guardian until every family member gets legal notice.
