SALT LAKE CITY -- The parents of missing Utah mother Susan Powell are wrangling with their late son-in-law's family over management of the woman's assets, including her West Valley City home.

Powell has not been found since she disappeared in 2009. Her husband Josh Powell killed their two sons and himself in February 2012.

Susan Powell's father Chuck Cox of Washington is the conservator of her estate, but Josh Powell's mother and sister are asking a Utah judge to appoint a third-party to fill the role.

Anne Bremner, an attorney for Susan Powell's parents, told Judge L.A. Dever on Wednesday that the issue has already been settled in Washington federal court.

Dever has not ruled on the matter.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Josh Powell's family is seeking $3.5 million in life insurance policies.
