MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling that the children of Alabama coffee magnate Leroy Hill were supposed to inherit his coffee company and ranch.

Hill’s children from his first marriage sued his second wife, Debbie Hill, after Leroy Hill died in 2009. They said Hill agreed when he divorced their mother that he would leave his company and ranch to his children. Debbie Hill contended she was the rightful heir. The children won a trial in Mobile last October. The Supreme Court upheld that decision unanimously Friday.

The children’s attorney, Vince Kilborn, said they will get control of Leroy Hill Coffee Co., the 3,500-acre ranch in Grand Bay, and a 25,000-square-foot ranch home.
