B.B. King‘s longtime business manager was named executor of his estate Thursday, despite objections from four of the late blues icon’s daughters.

Clark County District Court Judge Gloria Sturman told Karen Williams, Patty King, Rita Washington and Barbara Winfree that their father’s January 2007 will is valid.

The document puts LaVerne Toney solely in charge of administering King’s trust, his assets and his property.

King died May 14 in Las Vegas at age 89, with 11 surviving adult children.

A lawyer for the daughters accused Toney of misusing her position as power-of-attorney to loot bank accounts and prevent relatives from visiting him in his dying days.

Attorney Brent Bryson, representing the estate and Toney, says B.B. King put Toney in charge because he expected a family feud after he died.
