PROVO, Utah - Gary Coleman's ex-wife is asking a judge to award her the child TV star's estate.
Shannon Price testified Monday in district court in Provo, Utah, that even though the two divorced in 2008 they continued to live together and present themselves in public as married.
The "Diff'rent Strokes" actor died of a brain hemorrhage in 2010.
Another woman says Coleman named her a beneficiary and executor of his estate in 2005. Anna Gray managed Coleman's affairs for a number of years and was his ex-girlfriend.
The trial started Monday and was to continue Tuesday.
Gray, representing herself, asked Price why she took her name off the deed to the couple's Santaquin, Utah, house.
Price says she had to do it for the divorce.
