CHESTER, Ill. (AP) - Family members of a murdered southwestern Illinois woman and her children are asking a judge to let them move the bodies to the woman's hometown of Chicago.

The mother and brother of Sheri Coleman on Friday asked a Randolph County judge to lift an injunction barring them from moving the remains of Coleman and her sons. Christopher Coleman is serving a life sentence for strangling his family in their Columbia home in May 2009.
