LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mickey Rooney's will calls for the bulk of his modest estate to go to a stepson who had been caring for him in his final years.

Documents filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court show Rooney signed his final will and trust on March 11, less than a month before his death.

The filing states Rooney's estate is currently worth an estimated $18,000.

Rooney, who died Sunday at age 93, named his stepson and caretaker Mark Rooney and his wife as the sole beneficiaries of his estate.

The "Andy Hardy" star, whose career spanned more than 80 years in show business, lost much of his fortune in recent years.

He said he was a victim of elder abuse and financial mismanagement and went to live with Mark Rooney, repaying his debts and continuing to appear in movies.
