LOS ANGELES (AP) - Heirs of the late Lucille Ball and her second husband are sparring over the planned auction of the some of the couple’s prized possessions.

Among the items on the auction block are love letters between Ball and Gary Morton, a Rolls Royce and some of the actress’ awards. Morton was the comedienne’s second husband.

The items were consigned to Heritage Auction Galleries by Susie Morton, who married Gary Morton after Ball’s death in 1989.

Ball’s daughter from her first marriage with co-star Desi Arnaz wants some of the items returned. An attorney for Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill says she will go to court Friday to try to block the sale if the items are not returned.

Susie Morton asked a judge Monday to determine that she has the right to offer the items for auction.
