OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A schoolteacher accused of having sex with a 13-year-old former student and fleeing with him to Mexico now faces a custody battle for her 8-year-old daughter, whom she left with her parents before disappearing.

A state judge last week granted emergency temporary custody of Kelsey Peterson's daughter to the girl's father, William Alexander Long of Texas.

Peterson gave birth when she was a high school junior. Long and Peterson never wed.
