ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A judge has ruled that two critics of polygamist leader Warren Jeffs will be allowed to give limited testimony at a September trial about the control Jeffs exerted over marriages and couples' sex lives.
Fifth District Judge James L. Shumate says Richard Holm and Jethro Barlow can also discuss Jeffs' authority within the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
But Shumate says the men will not be allowed to share their opinions of how Jeffs' rule over the church differed from that of his predecessors.
In a preview of their testimony yesterday, both men described how people were taught it was best to let the Lord, working through Jeffs, arrange marriages.
