CHESTER, IL (KTVI)– A judge ruled Monday that the family of Sheri Coleman can move her grave, along with the graves of her two boys.

It end’s a battle over the bodies the Columbia, Illinois mother and her sons, strangled in May 2009.

A jury convicted the father and husband, Christopher Coleman, last year for murdering his family to be with his mistress.

Originally a judge blocked Sheri’s family from moving the bodies, giving power to the convicted killer, whose future gravesite would have been right next to his murdered wife and boys.

The bodies are now in Chris Coleman’s hometown of Chester, Illinois. They could move up to Sheri Coleman’s hometown, near Chicago, as early as next week.
