SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- The father-in-law of a missing Utah woman was once accused of inappropriately discussing sex with children and keeping pornography in his home.

A 1992 divorce case reviewed by The Associated Press shows Steve Powell's ex-wife accusing him of damaging his children's respect for marriage. Powell was charged this month with child pornography and voyeurism after authorities investigating the disappearance of Susan Powell searched his home him Puyallup. Susan Powell's husband, Josh Powell, has been named a person of interest in the case, and he was recently living with Steve Powell.

Susan Powell's family is now seeking custody of her children. Josh Powell has said he did not see pornography at his father's home and had nothing to do with any kind of illegal activity.
