Jason Young and Michelle Young's sister will share custody of slain mother's child.

Michelle Young's husband, Jason Young, has had custody of the couple's 4-year-old daughter since Michelle's 2006 murder.

The agreement between Jason Young and Meredith Fisher to transfer custody was filed in a Wake County court Friday.

Read more details filed in the custody documents.

Fisher will have primary custody of Cassidy Young. Jason Young will have visitation every other weekend, during holidays, birthdays and summers.

Michelle Young was found beaten to death in her Raleigh home. She was pregnant at the time and Cassidy, who was 2, was found wandering near her mother's dead body.

Although Jason Young was never named a suspect in the murder, in December a judge ruled in the civil case against him, saying he "willfully and unlawfully" killed his wife Michelle.

The criminal case remains unsolved.
