Wades ex-wife invokes the Fifth in custody hearing
Miami's Dwyane Wade goes past the Bulls' Omer Asik for a shot during a 2011 game in Chicago.
The child custody battle between Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife returned to a Chicago courtroom where Siovaughn Funches-Wade invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination during a hearing on visitation rights.
Funches-Wade is accused of child abduction for, authorities allege, failing to return their sons, ages 10 and 5, to Wade in a timely manner over the Father's Day weekend. She was supposed to give the boys to Wade's sister June 16 so that they could return to Miami to be with their father.
Wade is seeking a suspension of her visitation rights, or visitation only with supervision.
Funches-Wade's attorney, Michael Haber, said testifying Tuesday might hurt her defense against the criminal charges.
The couple divorced in 2010, with Wade getting custody of the boys in 2011.
