Chester, IL (KSDK) - An attorney representing Sheri Coleman's family confirms a judge has blocked an effort to have the bodies of Sheri and her two sons, Garett and Gavin, exhumed from a cemetery in Chester, Illinois and moved to Cook County, Illinois.

Christopher Coleman and his parents opposed the move, and on Monday a judge issued a temporary restraining order until another hearing is held.

Requests by next-of-kin to move bodies are usually granted unless another party opposes. 

Christopher Coleman is in prison for murdering Sheri, Garett, and Gavin on May 5, 2009 at their home in Columbia, Illinois.
