Judges have determined that the custody fight over the daughter of dead Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and his slain girlfriend will be waged in Missouri, not Texas.
The custody fight is between the paternal and maternal grandparents of 4-month-old Zoey Belcher. She was orphaned on Dec. 1 when her father fatally shot her mother at their home in suburban Kansas City, then drove to the Chiefs' stadium and killed himself.
An attorney for the maternal grandparents, Jon Michael Franks, says judges in both states held a conference call Thursday with lawyers for the two families.
Franks says the judges agreed to dismiss his clients' lawsuit in Texas and handle the custody fight in Missouri, where the infant's paternal grandparents filed their custody lawsuit.
