SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Josh Powell's family is appealing to the Utah Supreme Court a recent ruling that cut them out of a trust that has $2 million in life-insurance proceeds.

A Utah judge earlier this month sided with the parents of missing mother Susan Powell, ruling that her father was within his bounds to remove Josh Powell's mother and sister from the trust.

The money is set to flow into a trust, created by Susan Powell and her husband, Josh Powell, this December when she is presumed legally dead — five years after her disappearance.

Charles Cox, designated as conservator of the trust, made the amendments last year.

The Powell's attorney argued that the proceeds should be split evenly between the two families as originally set up.
