Grandfather: Boys were playing happily before fatal visit with dad Josh Powell
GRAHAM, Wash. (AP) ' The maternal grandparents of Josh Powell's two sons say the boys were playing happily Sunday and didn't want to visit their father.
Charles and Judy Cox tell KIRO-TV that the grandmother talked them into a supervised child custody visit with their father.
When the boys arrived at Powell's Washington state home, their father barred a social worker from entering and then lit the house on fire. All three died.
Charlie and Braden Powell shared a bedroom in the Cox's Puyallup (Pyoo-AL'-up) home since last fall, when they were removed from their father's custody.
The Coxes are parents of Susan Powell, who has been missing since 2009. Josh Powell was a person of interest in her disappearance in Utah.
