Point of law clarified in Cox custody casePublished 10:55am Friday, May 17, 2013
Attorneys in the custody case of two-year-old Emma Cox were part of a telephone hearing Thursday in Otter Tail County District Court to clarify a point regarding test results in the case.
The chemical dependency results and mental health evaluation for Bobbi Teeple, who has limited visitation rights with her granddaughter, will be available for counsel on both sides, according to District Judge Wally Senyk.
Grandparents Darrin and Catherine Cox were initially awarded temporary custody of their granddaughter after their 17-year-old son, Dylan Cox, fatally shot his 16-year-old girlfriend, Tabitha Belmonte, and then himself in March 2011.
Teeple, Belmonte’s mother, had also sought custody but Senyk granted her limited visitation.
A review hearing is scheduled June 4.
