(KSL News) The parents of the kidnapped bride were back in court today.

Lem and Julia Redd are charged with kidnapping, accused of taking their daughter Julianna out of state to prevent her from getting married last summer.

The mother and father now have separate attorneys, and today prosecutors argued that could create a conflict of interest for the attorney who is now just representing Julia Redd.

Rhome Zabriskie, Julia Redd's attorney, says the couple is aware of the potential for conflicts, but wants to stand trial together. "The judge is expecting we will advise our clients about the potential for conflict, and they are prepared to waive that and be fully advised before next week," Zabriskie said.

The judge will make a decision on the attorney issue next week. The Redds are scheduled for trial in December.
