SALT LAKE CITY — The parents of missing Utah mother Susan Powell are wrangling with their late son-in-law’s family over management of the woman’s assets, including her West Valley City home.

Powell disappeared in 2009 and has never been found. Her husband Josh Powell killed their two sons and himself in February 2012.

Her father Chuck Cox of Puyallup, Wash., is serving as the conservator of Susan Powell’s estate, but Josh Powell’s mother and sister have asked a judge to appoint a third-party to fill the role.

Anne Bremner, an attorney for Susan Powell’s parents, told a Utah judge Wednesday that the issue was already settled in Washington federal court.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/19LaZ3N ) Josh Powell’s family is seeking $3.5 million in life insurance policies.

Utah Judge L.A. Dever has not ruled on the matter.
