McKINNEY, Texas (AP) — A Dallas-area judge has ordered Hall of Famer Deion Sanders to pay $10,550 in monthly child support but no spousal support in his bitter divorce.

Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar, agreed Tuesday to share custody of their three children for the summer.

A judge in McKinney ordered the ex-Dallas Cowboy to pay $3,500 a month for a house where his estranged wife now lives and where their children will sometimes stay. Sanders, who's an NFL Network analyst, also must pay $275,000 in his spouse's recent legal fees.

Pilar Sanders had sought $14,000 in monthly spousal support.

The divorcing couple previously shared a mansion in Prosper. An April 23 scuffle at the house led to allegations of assault by both parties. A judge later ruled neither committed domestic violence.
