Two of blues legend BB King's daughters have accused his two closest aides of poisoning him.

Karen Williams and Patty King allege in documents provided by their lawyer to The Associated Press that King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, killed their father.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said a post-mortem was performed on Sunday on King's embalmed body but test results will take up to eight weeks.

Las Vegas police Lt Ray Steiber confirmed that homicide detectives are investigating.

The investigation should not delay planned memorials this week in Memphis, Tennessee, and Indianola, Mississippi.

Toney and Johnson each declined to comment.

King died in Las Vegas earlier this month aged 89.
