Custody of Pilger Storm Survivor Being Heard in Stanton CO Court
STANTON - The guardianship of a 4-year-old Pilger girl whose mother is still in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained in the June 16th tornadoes is now being discussed in Stanton County Court.
4-year-old Robin Dixon has been in her grandmother's care while her mother Kandi Murphree is being treated for injuries sustained in the storms at the Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha.
Judge Michael Long heard the case Tuesday as Dixon's father, Elijah who lives in Madison, Alabama, is seeking custody of the child. Dixon is also the father of 6-year-old Calista Dixon who died from injures sustained in the storm.
Court documents also show that Dixon has filed for custody of Robin in Alabama.
Judge Long continued the hearing on Tuesday. The case will resume Friday at 1:30pm in Stanton County Courts.
