Newest Susan Powell legal fight: When to declare her dead
December 5, 2014 Updated 4 hours ago

SALT LAKE CITY — The fifth anniversary of Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance was supposed to be a milestone — the date when Utah law allows the former Puyallup woman to be declared dead and add a measure of closure to the saga.

But as the anniversary arrives Saturday (Dec. 6), when the missing wife and mother died has turned into one more legal fight between her parents, Chuck and Judy Cox of Puyallup, and the family of her late husband, Josh Powell.

West Valley City, Utah, police believe Josh Powell kidnapped and killed his wife on Dec. 6, 2009 — the last day the 28-year-old woman was last seen alive.

But in court papers, the Coxes and the Powells are arguing over whether a judge should find Susan Powell died before May 10, 2013, a legally significant juncture that could mean millions of dollars for one side of the family or the other.

ESTATE FIGHT

Utah law states that someone “who is absent for a continuous period of five years” is presumed dead. The date of death is considered to be the end of the time period “unless there is sufficient evidence for determining that death occurred earlier,” the statute states.

Chuck and Judy Cox have no plans to ask a judge for such a declaration.

Court battle rages long after Susan Powell’s disappearance

 
Now, Josh Powell’s family says they’re entitled to half of $2.3 million in proceeds from life insurance policies taken out on the couple and their two sons. They want a judge to declare that Susan Powell died the day of her disappearance: Dec. 6, 2009.

While the Powells say they are protecting their legal rights, lawyers for the family of the missing woman says they still hope she’ll be found and accused their former in-laws of trying to profit off her death.

“After arguing for years that Joshua had nothing to do with Susan’s disappearance, they are now trying to prove he killed her in hopes that they might obtain a piece of her estate,” the lawyers wrote in court documents.

Powell attorney Joshua Lee denies that, telling The Salt Lake Tribune they’re not weighing in on how she died.

If the judge finds Susan Powell died in 2009, her in-laws say it would mean they would get $1.15 million, half of what a federal judge in Washington state has decided should go to her family. U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton awarded a much smaller amount, about $793,000, to the Powells in a May ruling.

Sister Alina Powell has denied her brother killed his wife. She and her mother argue the money was originally supposed to be split between the two families and Susan Powell’s father, Charles Cox of Puyallup, wrongly shut them out last year.

Judge Mark Kouris dealt the Powells a setback Friday, denying a motion that would prevent Cox from using the money.

The Powells are also appealing another order that found they don’t have a right to the money because they waited too long to object to Cox’s actions, even though he didn’t follow all the proper procedures
.

Cox attorney Anne Bremner says Susan Powell’s parents want to donate the money to charity.

“They want to see at least some good come out of this horrible tragedy,” she said.

Appeal dismissed in Susan Powell life insurance case
Friday , January 09, 2015 - 6:52 PM

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.

I wouldn't be surprised if Josh Powell's family received a share of the life insurance money as part of the settlement. jmo.

Susan Cox Powell estate battle is settled
Posted 5:15 pm, March 26, 2015, by Ben Winslow, Updated at 07:21am, March 27, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY — One of the biggest cases in Utah has apparently reached a final chapter.

In a brief court hearing in 3rd District Court, lawyers for the families of Susan Cox Powell and her husband, Josh Powell, announced a settlement in the lengthy and sometimes contentious battle over her estate.

“We mediated late in to the evening, resolved the issues and will withdraw the motion,” Powell family attorney Josh Lee told Judge Barry Lawrence at a hearing Thursday.

“You take the wind out of my sails, counsel,” said Judge Lee, who had braced for hours of arguments. “Does that resolve all disputes?”

It apparently did, as lawyers confirmed to FOX 13 outside court. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but an attorney for Susan’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, did confirm some details:
•Chuck Cox will remain in control of her estate;
•Chuck Cox will make any determination of when to ask a court to declare Susan legally dead, not the family of Josh Powell (who had filed a lawsuit over it);


The battle over control of Susan’s estate, and potentially millions in life insurance money had stretched all the way to the Utah Court of Appeals and the Utah Supreme Court. Josh Powell’s mother, Terrica, and sister, Alina, had filed a lawsuit seeking to declare Susan legally dead in order to obtain a share of any life insurance money.

As they left court, Chuck and Judy Cox declined to comment on the settlement.

“I believe the Coxes are ready to move on,” Cox family attorney Evan Bariault told FOX 13 on Thursday. “I believe the Powells are ready to move on. Both parties recognize it and I believe this allows them to do that.”

grace-land, you are probably correct.  Sometimes the money is just not worth the battle.
Whatever decision Susan's family made, I applaud them for their courage and tenacity.

Steven Powell renews claims that 2011 search of his house was illegal
Published: Tuesday, June 23 2015 12:00 p.m. MDT
Updated: yesterday

TACOMA, Wash. — On the eve of his child pornography trial, Steven Powell is once again claiming the search of his Puyallup, Washington, home in August 2011 was illegal.

In October, prosecutors refiled a charge of possession of child pornography against Powell, 64, in Pierce County Superior Court after an appeals court determined that the charge was wrongly dismissed by a judge during Powell's original 2012 trial.

The father of Josh Powell is accused of taking inappropriate pictures of two neighbor girls, ages 10 and 8, using a telephoto lens from his bedroom peering into their home. If convicted, Powell — who already served 30 months in prison after being convicted of voyeurism — could be sentenced to an additional five years.

Powell's trial was scheduled to begin Monday but was continued until next week after he filed a 127-page motion claiming the search warrant served by West Valley police in Utah on his Puyallup home was illegal and that all evidence collected as a result of the warrant should be tossed.
 
Powell's new motion will be considered by a judge on Monday.

Josh Powell murdered his two young sons, Charlie and Braden, in 2012 before killing himself. Susan Powell's body has never been found.

TACOMA, Wash. — A judge on Tuesday rejected a motion by Steven Powell to throw out the 2011 search of his Puyallup, Washington, home by West Valley police and all the evidence seized because of it, thereby clearing the way for a new trial to begin next week.

Thank you for the update grace-land. 

The possibility of Steven Powell spending additional time behind bars keeps him out of circulation and away from innocent children.  JMHO

Steven Powell trial on child porn charge opens
Posted 5:57 PM, July 7, 2015, by John Hopperstad, Updated at 06:10pm, July 7, 2015

TACOMA — The child pornography trial of Steven Powell started Tuesday.

Powell is the father of Josh Powell, who killed his two young boys and himself in Graham while he was being investigated for possibly killing his wife, Susan Cox Powell, in Utah.

“This case is about the defendant’s secret,” said deputy Pierce County prosecutor Bryce Nelson during opening arguments.
 
The case goes back to 2011 when police first searched Steven Powell’s home in Graham. They were looking for evidence in the Susan Cox Powell investigation. She had vanished, and detectives believed her husband Josh, who was living with his dad at the time, was involved in her disappearance.

Instead, they found several pictures and videos of two young neighbor girls in their bathroom.

Prosecutors say there were hundreds of photos showing the girls naked in the bath, but the family next door apparently never knew they were being victimized.

“What they or their mom did not know was that someone was watching them, and taking video of them,” said Nelson. “That was Steven Powell.”

Now Steven Powell is on trial again, and trying to spare himself from serving even more prison time.

His attorney, Travis Currie, told jurors to keep an open mind.

“What you’ve heard is a story,” said Currie. “Like any good story, it has drama, victims, and a villain. But it’s not evidence.”

If convicted, Powell faces up to another five years behind bars.

The trial is scheduled to resume on Thursday.

Steven Powell’s daughter testifies against him in court, says she wishes he was back in jail
Posted 4:32 PM, July 9, 2015, by Tom Yazwinski, Updated at 04:57pm, July 9, 2015

TACOMA — Steven Powell’s daughter testified against him in court Thursday as he faces a charge of possession of child pornography.

While investigating the disappearance of Steven Powell’s daughter-in-law, Susan Cox Powell, detectives found what they said was thousands of images of nude girls.

On Thursday, the mother of two young neighbor girls of Powell fought back tears on the stand as she talked about the photos found in Powell’s home. The photos apparently were taken of the girls through a window as they were were bathing in their home.

“The first one is my oldest daughter,” she said. “The second one is my oldest daughter. The third one is a picture of both of the children.”

Steven Powell’s daughter, Jennifer Graves, also took the stand against her father.

After court was dismissed, she spoke more about her estranged dad.

“For the sake of society and for himself,” Graves said, “I think it’s better if he just remain behind bars. I’d like to see that outcome.”

Jurors begin deliberations in Steven Powell child porn trial

TACOMA,Wash. (AP) — Jurors have begun deliberating in the child pornography trial for Steven Powell.

Powell, 64, is on trial for possessing explicit images of two neighbor girls, ages 8 and 10, that prosecutors say were taken from a bedroom window of his home in 2006 and 2007. The trial began last week and jurors started deliberations Monday.

Powell was convicted on 14 counts of voyeurism in 2012 for shooting video and still pictures of the girls as they used a family bathroom next door. The child porn charges were thrown out by a superior court judge before the voyeurism trial but were reinstated by an appeals court.
