Anton Yelchin’s parents have filed court documents indicating the "Star Trek" actor died without a will and left behind a nearly $1.4 million estate. Court records show Victor and Irina Yelchin filed to become administrators of their son’s estate on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The actor died on June 19 when he was crushed by his Jeep Grand Cherokee in the driveway of his Studio City home. The filing states Yelchin left behind at least $641,000 in personal property and had $731,000 in equity in his home. The 27-year-old actor played Pavel Chekov in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise.
