Boyfriend of Savanna Greywind granted custody of baby

Ashton Matheny, boyfriend of the slain Fargo woman, Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, said DNA test results have confirmed that he and LaFontaine-Greywind are the parents of the newborn baby found in the apartment of the two suspects charged in the case.

Greywind's family released a statement on the court's ruling that reads, "Savanna's family is enjoying a wonderful shared relationship caring for Haisley Jo and spending many handsome moments bonding with her. Haisley Jo is their little shining star". He left the courthouse with his lawyer to pick up Haisley Jo from Greywind's parents.

Matheny had been living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, working construction, when Lafontaine-Greywind became pregnant, but quit his job and moved back to North Dakota as the baby's due date approached, reported the Grand Forks Herald.

Lafontaine-Greywind disappeared after Crews reportedly asked her to come to her apartment and model a dress that she was sewing.

Matheny posted pictures of Haisley Jo, his daughter with LaFontaine-Greywind, on Facebook over the weekend.

Little Haisley Jo was reunited with her father after allegedly being ripped out from her mother's womb. He visited her twice in a local hospital, and she was placed in his care Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Crews and Hoehn were arrested after police found Haisley Jo in their apartment. "This is our family".

Brooke Crews, 38, and William Hoehn, 32, are accused of murdering Savanna Greywind, who lived below them in the building on 2825 9th Street North.

Three days after police found the newborn, kayakers discovered LaFontaine-Greywind's body in the nearby Red River, wrapped in plastic and duct tape, police said.

Crews initially told police Lafontaine-Greywind gave up her baby, but later admitted that she took advantage of the mother in an attempt to take her baby.

Crews and Hoehn are being held at the Cass County Jail in North Dakota in lieu of $2 million bail.
