Terri Moulton Horman, former stepmother of missing boy Kyron Horman, leaves a courtroom Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014. A judge said her attorney won't be allowed to question a landscaper who alleges Terri wanted to hire him to kill her then-husband Kaine.

PORTLAND, Ore. – A judge decided Thursday that Terri Moulton Horman, the former stepmother of missing boy Kyron Horman won’t be allowed to question the family landscaper.

Kyron Horman disappeared four years ago from his school in Northwest Portland. Since then Terri has been fighting to see her 5-year-old daughter Kiara, who she had with Kaine.

Terri’s attorney says the alleged murder-for-hire plot involving the landscaper is the main reason why the court decided Terri couldn't see her daughter.

The judge said he would give "limited weight" to testimony from the landscaper. Outside the courtroom, Terri and her attorney had no comment on Thursday’s hearing.

Kyron’s father, Kaine, did speak and took of his suit coat to show he was wearing a “Find Kyron” T-shirt.

“We still have this guy missing,” he said. “And there’s nothing more important to me than keeping my daughter safe and bringing him home. We have work to do.”

The parenting and custody trial is scheduled for June.

A judge in December 2013 finalized the couple’s divorce.
