Records: Chris Coleman was model employee

COLUMBIA, Ill. (AP) -- Employment records say a southwestern Illinois man accused of strangling his wife and two sons was a model employee who was "hard working, diligent and very trustworthy."

Some of Christopher Coleman's employment records -- including evaluations and a resignation letter -- were released Friday by Joyce Meyer Ministries.

Coleman was hired as a security guard in 2000 for the Jefferson County-based television ministry. He was promoted to head of security.

He's pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Sheri Coleman, and their sons.

Coleman is jailed without bond.

Hundreds of pages of employment documents have been filed in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Sheri Coleman's family. Joyce Meyer Ministries had sought to keep the documents confidential.
