CHICAGO (WLS) -- Banks' estranged wife and his caretaker are battling over his money and body. A hearing will be held Thursday.

Elizabeth Banks wants to stop caretaker Regina Rice from cremating his body. Banks is already buried in Graceland Cemetery.

Rice is reportedly asking Banks to turn over a list of their assets from their separation.

Banks' sons are also contesting a new will their father signed giving his assets to Rice.
