Judge rules Powell children 'cannot safely be returned home'

A Pierce County judge ruled this afternoon that the sons of a missing Utah mother cannot be safely returned to their father, who has long been a person of interest in his wife's 2009 disappearance. Judge Kathryn Nelson awarded temporary custody of the boys to Susan Cox Powell's parents, Chuck and Judy Cox. Josh Powell has been granted supervised visits.
