Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter said Thursday she will comply with a judge's order to turn over the late civil rights leader's Nobel Peace Prize medal and personal Bible, and urged her two brothers to reconsider selling the "sacred" items. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney last month ordered Bernice King to relinquish the prize and Bible so they can be placed in a safe deposit box controlled by the court, until a lawsuit filed by the King estate is resolved. The Bible was used by President Obama to take the oath in his second inaugural ceremony.
