Battle Continues Over Anna's Body

2/28/2007 11:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern and Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, are back in Florida today, where an appeals court is considering a request by Arthur to bury Anna in Texas.

Last week, the offbeat Judge Seidlin decided that the court-appointed guardian for Smith's daughter would make the decision as to where Smith's body would be buried. The guardian said she'd be buried next to her son Daniel in the Bahamas.

Both sides will be given 20 minutes each to present their arguments this morning, Anna's potential baby-daddy Larry Birkhead will not be present at the hearing.

To catch all the action as it happens, tune in to the live feed from Miami's WTVJ, right here.

YAWN, already. Bury her next to her son for God's sake. She died 3 weeks ago, enough is enough.

Disgusting. Maybe they can put her next to James Brown and they can both decompose together.

It's obvious the judges don't know this case. Danny didn't choose to die in the Bahamas, fleeing the USA from the USA laws is a major issue.

At least James Brown was given the courtesy of being embalmed right away and a funeral service. His body was sealed in his coffin.
Anna hasn't even been given that dignity. These people should be ashamed of themselves. Whose going to explain this mess to Danielynne?

I'll bet Stern is wishing he hadn't killed Danny, he did it because he was turning 21 and the money would have been in Danny's control or at least he may have been able to change the executor of his Mom's will. Doesn't Danny have anyone coming forward to testify for him?

The judges seem to already have their minds made up due to ANS intent. She's already in a better place and in spirit with her son, so please let her rest on this earth next to her son.

Attractive?    

Howard is looking creepy as ever in court. How dare he shake his head. What she is saying about the purchase of the property in the Bahamas is absolutely true. HKS is an arrogant bastard.
