LAS VEGAS (AP) — An initial court date in the battle over B.B. King’s estate has been pushed back to June 22.

Clark County District Court spokeswoman Mary Ann Price said Thursday that resetting the hearing from Friday will put the case before the judge who heads probate courts in Las Vegas.

Four of King’s 11 surviving children are trying to block the blues legend’s longtime business manager from becoming executor of his estate.

King died May 14 at age 89.

His will names LaVerne Toney to continue handling his affairs.

Four of King’s adult daughters — Patty King, Karen Williams, Rita Washington and Barbara Winfree — accuse Toney of looting King’s accounts and endangering his health in his dying days.

A lawyer representing Toney and the estate says the allegations aren’t true.
