The death of blues legend B.B King is being investigated as a possible homicide after his two daughters charged his manager with murder.

His daughter Patty King has made claims (not yet proven) against King's longtime manager Laverne Toney. The attorney has replied to these claims calling them 'ridiculous'. “They’ve been making allegations all along” said the lawyer. “What’s new?” he asked.

Patty before her father's death charged the lawyer with elder-abuse charge. Prior to that she made a similar charge last November. Both investigations found no evidence of wrong doing.

Prior to this investigation, B.B King was believed to have died of Type 2 diabetes. An autopsy has been carried out on his embalmed body. Toxicology reports won't be out until July.

Last week in Las Vegas a memorial service was held in his honour.
