(KSL News) A woman accused of making the phone call that set the FLDS custody battle in motion could appear in a Texas courtroom in October.

Rozita Swinton's name appears on a list of potential witnesses to be called at a hearing to determine if law enforcement overstepped its bounds during the investigation earlier this year.

Swinton is suspected of calling Texas child welfare officials posing as a 16-year-old girl being abused on the FLDS compound.

The Deseret News reports that attorneys for the FLDS Church are asking for evidence taken during the investigation, potentially launched by that call, be returned.
