A Stevenson man who has been fighting for four years to keep his wife's remains buried on his property is planning on another appeal.

It was the dying wish of Jim Davis's wife, Patsy Davis, to be buried at the couple's Stevenson home they shared for decades. Now, he may have to remove his wife from her grave, and put her in a cemetery. The 74-year-old man has fought to keep his wife buried in his front yard, but the Alabama Supreme Court rejected his appeal. Davis says, "They are wanting a date from me when I will get her up and move her. This is the most vindictive thing that could happen to anybody. To be this way and to do this to me takes a person without any heart."

Davis says he's not done fighting to keep his wife where she is. He plans to take his fight to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Stevenson City Attorney says work to remove the remains of Patsy Davis could begin this week, and her remains would have to be placed in a proper cemetery.
