LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Marcia Wallace, the voice of Edna Krabappel on "The Simpsons," has died.
"Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean said in a statement Saturday that her death is a terrible loss. He says Wallace's "irreplaceable character," the fourth-grade teacher who has to deal with Bart Simpson's constant antics, would be retired from the show.
The longtime TV actress' credits ranged from playing a wise-cracking receptionist in the 1970s on "The Bob Newhart Show" to appearances on Candice Bergen's "Murphy Brown" In the 1980s and 90s.

Quincy Jones sues Michael Jackson's estate
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Quincy Jones is suing Michael Jackson's estate claiming he is owed royalties on some of the superstar's hits and was improperly deprived of a producer credit on music used in the "This Is It" film.
Jones' lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles seeks millions in damages from the singer's estate. The suit claims Jackson's estate re-worked some of the superstar's music that Jones produced and cut him out of the royalties and other profits.
The producer is also asking a judge to order Jackson's estate to provide a full accounting of its proceeds to determine how much he is owed. Jones produced some of Jackson's most popular albums, including "Off the Wall" and "Thriller."
Jackson's estate had no immediate comment on the lawsuit.
