NOWATA, Okla. – There is some activity outside of a Nowata courthouse Friday morning in anticipation of a possible hearing in the baby Veronica case.

The judge issued a gag order for all involved in the case so details and facts are difficult to confirm.

However, the sheriff of Charleston, South Carolina, sent deputies to Oklahoma Thursday.

Sheriff Al Cannon would not confirm if he knew of any developments or action in the case.

According to the Tulsa World, 3-year-old Veronica’s adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco, were seen entering a back door of the courthouse at about 8:25 a.m.

About 15 minutes later, Veronica’s biological family entered the courthouse through the back door.

We will post  the latest updates on the baby Veronica case as soon as details are confirmed.
