BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- The man accused of strangling his wife and two sons in their southwestern Illinois home texted his mistress on the days of the wake and funerals, telling her he loved and missed her.

That's according to search warrant papers made public this week in Monroe County in the case involving Christopher Coleman.

Coleman has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the May deaths of his wife and their two sons, ages 11 and 9. Their bodies were found in the family's Columbia home.

According to the documents, the texts were sent to Coleman's girlfriend on her mother's cell phone, which the mistress was using because her phone already had been seized by investigators.
