Judge Refuses Emergency Anna Nicole DNA Test

A judge refused to order an emergency DNA test on Anna Nicole Smith as part of a paternity suit involving her infant daughter, Dannielynn. He did, however, order that her body be preserved until a hearing on Feb. 20, attorneys said.

Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole’s companion, and Larry Birkhead, Anna Nicole’s former boyfriend, are contesting the paternity of 5-month-old Dannielynn, and experts say the custody decision could determine the child's inheritance.

Smith's legacy could take years to untangle and could leave the baby girl with millions of dollars or nothing at all.
