LATEST: Anna Nicole Smith's body will be laid to rest next to that of her son DANIEL in the Bahamas, the lawyer granted custody of her corpse yesterday (22FEB07) has announced.
RICHARD MILSTEIN, the court-appointed lawyer for the former model's five-month-old daughter DANNIELYNN, revealed his decision soon after a Florida judge gave him control of Smith's burial.
No time frame for the funeral has been decided yet.
The burial site is in accordance with the wishes of Smith's lawyer and companion HOWARD K. STERN, who had been battling Smith's mother VIRGIE ARTHUR in court to prevent her body being returned to her native Texas.
Circuit Judge LARRY SEIDLIN also made it clear he shared Stern's sentiments before granting Milstein custody, saying, through tears, "I want her buried with her son in the Bahamas. I want them to be together."
Smith died at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel + Casino in Hollywood, Florida on 8 February (07) at the age of 39.
