Conn. dad seeks custody after alleged ex hit plot

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman charged in 2012 with trying to have her ex-husband killed still has legal custody of their 8-year-old daughter, despite separate efforts by the girl's father and grandparents to obtain custody after her mother's arrest.

Tiffany Stevens of Bloomfield has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and remains free on $1 million bail. Police say she tried to hire a hit man for $5,000 to kill her ex-husband, Eric Stevens.

Tiffany Stevens was awarded custody of the girl in September 2011 after the couple's divorce.

After Tiffany Stevens' arrest, a Hartford Family Court judge rejected her ex-husband's request for custody. Judge Leslie Olear also still hasn't ruled on a 1½-year-old custody request by the girl's grandparents.

Olear's secretary says the judge won't comment on the case.
