OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Last month, a South Carolina couple traveled to Oklahoma vowing to not leave the Sooner State without 3-year-old Veronica.
Since then, the little girl at the center of a bitter custody dispute has turned another year older and Matt and Melanie Capobianco traveled to courtrooms across Oklahoma in their fight to take the girl home with them.
Supporters of the girl's biological father, Dusten Brown, say he has put up a similar battle.
But someone had to relinquish control. On Monday night it was Brown. He handed over the girl to the Capobiancos hours after the Oklahoma Supreme Court dissolved a temporary court order giving him custody.
Brown had pushed his fight under the Indian Child Welfare Act, but the U.S. Supreme Court has said it does not apply.
