A judge in Utah ruled today that the remains of Gary Coleman can’t be cremated before Wednesday afternoon, reports the AP. The order would give the Diff’rent Strokes actor’s ex-girlfriend/manager enough time to travel to the state from Oregon to view his body. An independent attorney was appointed to oversee Coleman’s estate and cremation, as both Coleman’s ex-wife, Shannon Price, and his former girlfriend, Anna Gray, are currently laying claim to being the administrator of the estate. (Gray was named by Coleman in a 2005 will; Price in a 2007 handwritten note). Meanwhile, TMZ has acquired legal documents bearing Coleman’s signature that Price filed today; under the section titled “Instructions for Health Care,” Coleman checked a “Choice to Prolong Life” box that reads, “I want my life to be prolonged as long as possible within the limits of generally accepted health care standards.” Price maintains in the documents that she was “forced” to sign off on removing the 42-year-old Coleman from life support last month after he suffered an intracranial hemorrhage.
