Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, Second Division
March 4, 2014
IN THE INTEREST OF A.V.B.; MISSOURI DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, CHILDREN'S DIVISION, Respondent,
M.C. (Father), Appellant
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Bates County. The Honorable James K. Journey, Judge.
Gary L. Gardner, Jefferson City, MO; Diana D. Thomas, Butler, MO, for appellant.
Brandon G. Kinney and Laura K. West, Butler, MO, for respondent.
Before Division Two: Gary D. Witt, P.J., and Lisa White Hardwick and Alok Ahuja, JJ.
The Circuit Court of Bates County terminated M.C.'s parental rights to his infant daughter A.V.B. M.C. appeals, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to support the trial court's finding that grounds for termination existed, and that termination was in A.V.B.'s best interest. We affirm. Because a published opinion would have no precedential value, we have provided the parties with an unpublished memorandum setting forth the reasons for this order. Rule 84.16(b).
