Bernice King turns in father's Bible, Nobel prize

ATLANTA — A lawyer involved in the dispute over Martin Luther King Jr.’s Bible and Nobel Peace Prize says few words were exchanged as King’s daughter Bernice quietly surrendered the items so they could be placed in a safe deposit box.

A judge had ordered the items be kept there, with the keys held by the court, until the dispute can be settled.

Lawyer William Hill, who represents two other King children, tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Bernice King turned over the possessions to Martin Luther King III so they could be placed in the safe deposit box during a Monday meeting that was over in five minutes.

A judge is considering whether King III and his brother, Dexter Scott King, can sell the Bible and 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
