BM of Cincinnati wrote
“Christopher Coleman strangled his two sons and wife to death in 2009, today the jury will decide if he gets the death penalty or not. I wonder what Joyce Meyer
has to say bout all this. I really enjoy listening to her show some days and I can only think she would have a very strong opinion as to whether or not he should be put to death or not. I say yes, he killed his family, he does not deserve to live.”
The prosecuting attorney Ed Parkinson on Coleman’s case stated that he believed if there was a reason to convict some to death it would be Coleman. This man murdered his wife and two young sons while they slept in their beds.
On May 5, 2009 Christopher Coleman, who is the son of a pastor made a phone call to a police officer who had been to his home on several other occasions to investigate prior threats related to the Coleman family to check on them after attempts to contact the family by phone went unanswered.
When the police arrived at the Coleman residence they discovered the gruesome sight of Coleman’s wife and two young sons bodies, all three had been strangled with some form of wire,rope or cord.The police also stated that the walls of the home had been spray painted with obscenities that appeared to have been directed at Colemans wife Sheri. The words painted read “punished”, “wh*re paid”, “u have paid”, and “I saw you leave F*** you, I am always watching.”
Christopher Coleman resigned his position at Joyce Meyer Ministries, after being questioned about violating the ministry’s moral conduct policy. Coleman was Joyce Meyer’s bodyguard.
Joyce Meyer was questioned in court where she testified that she was not aware that Coleman had been having an affair with one of her employees until the detectives had told her,revealing had she known he would have been fired.
The prosecuting attorney argued that Christopher Coleman murdered his wife and children so he could keep his job with Joyce Meyer and continue his relationship with the other woman, who was a close friend of his wife Sheri’s.
Sheri Coleman’s family has filed a wrongful death suit in Monroe County Illinois against Joyce Meyer Ministries
, stating failure to recognize that Christopher Coleman was a threat to his family. The lawsuit claims that Joyce Meyer Ministries should of been aware Coleman was a threat because he had used his work place, issued computer and cell phone to make these threats against his family. In Cincinnati Ohio how many employees are fully aware of who is or isn’t having a work related affair?
Kelly F a Cincinnati teacher stated”I think work affairs are more common than you realize, but if the two cheating are very secretive and careful I believe that it could go undected by the bosses. Do I think Joyce Meyer should be held responsible, no, not unless there is some solid proof that he was a threat.”
The family’s attorney stated “This tragic murder would have been preventable if Joyce Meyer Ministries had responded to the threats and extramarital affair and warned the late Sheri Coleman.
The recent abolition of the death penalty in Illinois will go in to effect on July 1,2011. The Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn stated that he will commute any death sentences to life in prison.
Tim D of Cincinnati said “I want to know why he will have his sentenced change from death to life if he is being sentenced today, shouldn’t the date he is sentenced determine the punishment? Why not let the family of his victims decide?”
