The custody case is being heard in Fulton County court.

The DNR has said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the incident, which happened in the mouth of Big Creeknear Holiday Marina.
Kile is one of two children between Foster and Glover, her first husband. She and Usher have two boys, 4-year-old Usher V (4) and 3-year-old Naviyd.
