(KTVI) – A Monroe County judge threw out the civil suit against Joyce Meyer Ministries.  The suit involved former Joyce Meyer bodyguard, Chris Coleman.

Coleman was convicted of strangling his wife and two kids, to be with his mistress.

The judge said he couldn't see why the ministry could have predicted murder.

Meyer's attorney says his heart goes out to Sheri Coleman’s family, but the law doesn't support holding the evangelist accountable.

The attorney for Sheri Coleman’s family plans to appeal.
