Sister Of Woman Shot In Capitol Chase Denied Custody

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A judge has denied an emergency application for child custody filed by the sister of a Connecticut woman fatally shot by police after attempting to ram her car through a White House barrier.

Stamford Superior Court Judge Jane Emons on Friday denied an ex parte application filed by Valarie Carey of Brooklyn, N.Y., seeking temporary custody of 14-month-old Erica Francis, the daughter of Carey’s late sister, Miriam Carey.

The girl is currently in the custody of her father, Eric Francis.

Eric Sanders, an attorney for the Carey family, said they have only seen the girl once since Miriam Carey was shot last Thursday following a high-speed police chase in Washington, D.C. The girl was inside the vehicle but unhurt.
Sanders said the Careys “have no idea” about Erica’s current whereabouts.
