(Manti-AP) -- A hearing's set for today in the custody battle over three kids orphaned by lightning.

Richard and Lisa Goff were killed July 19 near Crystal Lake in the Uinta Mountains.

Their children are ages nine, five, and one and saw them get struck by lightning.

The kids have been staying with Lisa Goff's sister and husband.

But the children's grandparents argue the children's parents wanted them to be the guardians should anything happen to them.

Both sides filed court documents asking for custody in different courts.

Today's hearing will decide which court has authority to rule in the matter.
