LATEST: Anna Nicole Smith's estranged mother VIRGIE ARTHUR wants to exhume her grandson in the Bahamas and bring his body to Texas to be buried alongside his mother.
Smith's lawyer and companion HOWARD K. STERN and her mother are currently fighting for the former Playboy Playmate's remains in a Florida courtroom.
On the second day of testimony in the case, Circuit Judge LARRY SEIDLIN said the best result would be a compromise to appease both Arthur and Stern.
The medical examiner in the case warned yesterday (20FEB07) that Smith's body was decomposing more quickly than expected and a public viewing could be in danger.
The judge said he would make a decision by Friday morning (23FEB07), more than two weeks after her death.
Stern's attorney, KRISTA BARTH, claims Smith wanted to be buried next to her son and claims she has bank documentation proving Smith had agreed to pay for two cemetery plots in the Bahamas.
Arthur's lawyer contends that Smith's son was buried illegally in the Bahamas and wants his body brought to Texas.
Daniel died in the Bahamas just days after Smith gave birth to daughter DANNIELYNN in September (06).
Smith died at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel + Casino in Hollywood, Florida on 8 February (07) at the age of 39.
