An Alabama man is fighting to keep his wife buried in the front yard of his home.
James Davis says it was his wife's dying wish to be buried in their front yard.
Officials in Stevenson ordered Davis to remove his wife's remains and a judge ruled in favor of the city.
His attorneys filed a motion with the court on Monday asking that no action be taken until an appeal is heard.
