A case that pits Martin Luther King Junior's children against each other is getting closer to going to trial.

FOX's Dave Anthony reports:

They are fighting over their father's prized possessions. The Reverend Martin Luther King Junior's Nobel Peace Prize and travelling bible:

(King) "These two artifacts are too sacred to sell, or be bought under any circumstance."

That was Bernice King in 2014. She's still fighting her two brothers, Martin III and Dexter Scott, who want to sell both to a private buyer to help fund the King estate. 

A Fulton County Georgia court judge declined to rule Thursday in the dispute, meaning the case is headed to trial unless they can reach a settlement. Something former President Jimmy Carter has tried to help them work out. 

The Bible and Peace Prize remain in a safe deposit box and the court has the key.
