Hearing set in exhumation of murdered family
CHESTER, Ill. — Family members of a murdered southwestern Illinois woman and her children may have to wait until at least next month for a judge to decide whether they can move the bodies to the woman's hometown of Chicago.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Randolph County Judge Richard Brown has ordered that the exhumation be stayed until a Nov. 5 hearing on the matter.
The mother and brother of Sheri Coleman want Brown to lift an injunction barring them from moving the remains of Sheri Coleman and her sons. Christopher Coleman is serving a life sentence for strangling his family in their Columbia home in May 2009.
The three victims were buried in Christopher Coleman's hometown of Chester before he was charged.
Christopher Coleman's parents oppose the exhumation.
