PRESCOTT, Ariz. (CBS/AP) The mother of sextuplets, who were the subject of a reality TV series, has filed for legal separation from her husband in Arizona and wants sole custody of the children.

Jennifer Masche filed the petition days after her husband, Bryan, was arrested for yelling at and threatening his wife and another family member at a relative's home in Camp Verde. He has pleaded not guilty to three counts of domestic violence and one count of resisting arrest.

Court records filed earlier this month in Yavapai County show she is seeking primary custody of the children, who were born in June 2007, with reasonable visitation rights for their father.

The Masches starred in "Raising Sextuplets," which has finished its second season on WE TV.
