Custody hearing postponed again for Rayne Perrywinkle's children


One year after police say her daughter Cherish was abducted and killed, Rayne Perrywinkle talked to Action News about her fight to get her two younger daughters back in her custody.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A custody hearing Monday over the siblings of Cherish Perrywinkle has been postponed to a later date.

Rayne Perrywinkle is fighting to keep custody of her two youngest children.

The state removed the children, 5-year-old Neveah and 4-year-old Destiny, following the death of her 8-year-old daughter, Cherish Perrywinkle.

Donald Smith, a registered sex offender, is accused of kidnapping Cherish from a Walmart on Lem Turner and dumping her body behind a church last year.
