Almost three weeks after his shocking death, Gary Coleman's remains were cremated in a Salt Lake City, Utah mortuary on Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

No funeral, wake or other ceremony is planned at this time -- as prescribed in a 2005 will, according to attorney Robert Jeffs. (In a 1999 will, the former child star had said he wanted an intimate wake.)

But the rightful owner of Coleman's ashes and his belongings remains to be seen. A Utah judge appointed Jeffs to oversee Coleman's remains and property until an estate executor is determined.

Battling over Coleman's estate are his ex-wife Shannon Price (named his heir in a handwritten 2007 will) and ex-girlfriend Anna Gray (named in a more formalized 2005 will). Jeffs told the AP that the battle could take several months.

The Diff'rent Strokes star suffered a fatal brain hemorrhage after a fall in his Utah home May 26, and was taken off of life support two days later. He was 42.
