SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah court has dismissed an appeal filed by the family of Josh Powell in a $2.3 million life insurance case, saying a lower court decision isn't final yet.
The order handed down this week says Josh Powell's mother and sister can re-file their case in the future. They are fighting to get part of the proceeds from life insurance policies on missing mother Susan Powell as well as her husband and children.
Her father, Charles Cox, removed his son-in-law's family from a trust that holds the money in 2013. Josh Powell's family says the proceeds should be split between the families as originally designed.
Susan Powell went missing in 2009, and her husband was the only person of interest named in her disappearance before he killed himself and their two children.
