COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A family court judge is holding another hearing concerning a South Carolina couple's adoption of a Cherokee child.

Attorneys for the girl's biological father requested the Wednesday hearing in the dispute over Matt and Melanie Capobianco's adoption of 3-year-old girl Veronica.

Last month, a judge finalized the couple's adoption. The girl has been living with her biological father in Oklahoma for more than a year. South Carolina authorities charged him with custodial interference after he failed to show up with the child at a scheduled meeting.

Dusten Brown was serving with the Oklahoma National Guard at the time, and his parents had custody of Veronica through the Cherokee court system. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Tuesday she will not consider sending Brown to South Carolina pending a hearing.
