HAMPTON, Va. - As the search for missing 4-year-old Hampton boy Codi Bigsby continues, the case against his father for unrelated charges is making news again this week.

Codi's father, Cory Bigsby has been charged with seven counts of felony child neglect, stemming from incidents from before Codi was reported missing.

On April 5 he was denied bond in a appeal hearing.

On Wednesday, Jeff Ambrose, Cory Bigsby's attorney, filed a motion to withdraw from Cory Bigsby's case.

The motion lists "an ethical conflict has arisen that precludes further representation," as the reasoning.

In a hearing Thursday, his motion was approved by a judge.
