Marshall, who earlier this year fought pneumonia, was hospitalized at Park Plaza Hospital in Houston. Officials there confirmed Marshall's death but would not release any details. A battle had already been brewing over Marshall's estate, which reportedly has been valued at $550 million.

In the latest twist in a decade-long saga, a federal appeals court agreed Friday with a Texas jury's decision that billionaire J. Howard Marshall II never intended to leave his fortune to his wife, the late model and actress Anna Nicole Smith. The ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dealt Smith's estate a setback in the convoluted inheritance battle that has outlived her as well as her adversary, Marshall's son and executor, E. Pierce Marshall. Before her death from a prescription medication overdose three years ago, Smith had been fighting in Texas and California courts for recognition of what she claimed was her late husband's promise to leave her half of his $1.6-billion estate.

A federal bankruptcy judge in Los Angeles awarded Playboy pinup and Guess jeans model Anna Nicole Smith nearly $450 million on Wednesday, finding that she was deprived of the estate her late husband intended to leave her. Judge Samuel L. Bufford ruled that Smith's stepson deliberately interfered with her ability to inherit her share of an estimated $2-billion fortune amassed by the richest oilman in Texas. The judge also ruled that Smith was entitled to punitive damages to be calculated later.
