SEATTLE (AP) — A judge in Washington state has granted Casey Kasem's daughter a temporary restraining order preventing the famous radio host's wife from cremating or removing his remains from a funeral home.

Kasem, the radio host of "American Top 40" and voice of animated television characters like Scooby-Doo's sidekick Shaggy, died June 15 at a hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington. But court records show his body remains at a funeral home in Tacoma, south of Seattle, more than a month later.
