More legal maneuvering in Columbia triple murder

COLUMBIA, Ill. (AP) -- A Jefferson County-based television ministry says it is ready to provide material sought in a civil suit involving former employee Christopher Coleman, who is accused of killing wife and two sons at their home in Columbia.

Joyce Meyer Ministries says it wants the material kept private, but Jack Carey, a lawyer for the family of Coleman's slain wife Sheri, says the family won't agree to confidentiality.

The family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Coleman shortly after he was charged with three counts of first degree murder. He was the former security manager for Meyer, which was named in the lawsuit, but not as a defendant.

Carey has asked the ministry for information about life insurance policies, safe deposit boxes, pensions, overheard conversations, travel records and other information.
