COLUMBIA, Ill. -- Christopher Coleman, whose wife and two sons were found strangled in the family's home, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with their murders.
Coleman, 32, was arrested late Tuesday at his parents' home in Chester, Ill., and was taken to the Columbia Police Department. He left, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, for the Monroe County Jail later in the evening. Coleman was to be held without bond until going before a judge today.
Christopher Coleman told police he was working out at a gym in St. Louis County on May 5 when his wife and children were killed in their home at 2854 Robert Avenue, sometime between 5:45 and 7 a.m. Christopher Coleman was fingerprinted six days after the bodies were found and had been under police surveillance last week. Coleman had complained of some kind of threats related to his work in security for the Joyce Meyer Ministries, in Jefferson County.
Coleman resigned last week after Walker met with him in Chester to discuss what the ministry has said was "a violation of moral conduct.
