In true Dallas fashion, death is conquered by drama.

Larry Hagman's Estate is claiming that the star's granddaughter committed familial treason by taking extremely valuable jewelry hostage.

The lawyer for the Estate has filed legal documents which claim Noel Hagman is in possession of a Raj necklace and matching earring set with encrusted diamonds and emeralds.

The jewels were once supposedly owned by Larry's mother, actress Mary Martin, and handed down to her son. The Estate lawyer claims Noel obtained the priceless family relics and won't give them back.

Noel is claiming somone in the family gave the jewels to her, but that person has yet to step forward — if they even exist.

The Estate wants Noel to give back the jewels. If she refuses, she'll have to pay a hefty amount — double the value, according to law.

While the legal documents do not specify the value of the jewels, it can't be cheap.
