LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has decided 14-year-old "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter should continue staying with her sister instead of her mother.

Judge Michael Levanas extended the temporary custody of Winter to Shanelle Gray, 34, after a Department of Children and Family Services investigation found evidence of emotional abuse at the hands of the girl's mother, Chrisoula Workman, People.com reported.

Although the report showed allegations Winter made of physical abuse were unsubstantiated, investigators recommended Gray be awarded permanent guardianship of Winter, the magazine's website said.

The guardianship matter will be settled at trial, the start date for which has not yet been announced.
