Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin couldn't choose the lesser of any evils seated before him.
Therefore, instead of deciding to hand over the body of Anna Nicole Smith to either of her dueling baby's daddies, Seidlin deemed that the guardian of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern would decide the deceased model's final buiral place.
Blubbering as he announced his decision, the judge steered a surprise middle course in the dispute.
Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur (pictured here), wanted her buried in her native Texas, while Smith's boyfriend wanted her laid to rest in the Bahamas.
Instead, custody was awarded to attorney Richard Milstein. Needless to say, Howard K. Stern was far from pleased about this decision. Let's hope he doesn't take out his frustrations in a deadly manner.
Milstein said he would lay Smith to rest in the Bahamas.
The judge choked up frequently and wept as he explained his decision. "I want her to be buried with her son in the Bahamas. I want them to be together."
