LAS VEGAS (AP) — B.B. King family members are bringing in a prominent national lawyer to review the events surrounding the blues icon’s death and estate.

Attorney Benjamin Crump told The Associated Press on Friday that he’s been hired to take an independent look at King’s May 14 death at age 89 and the handling of King’s finances by his longtime business agent, LaVerne Toney.

Four of King’s adult daughters accuse Toney, his designated executor, 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.

Crump represented the family of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot by a neighborhood-watch organizer in 2012, and the family of Michael Brown, who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

      Good point. This leads me to believe he sought them out for representation. Who goes shopping for a loser attorney?
