KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Two siblings have sued a Kansas City funeral home that closed two years ago after the state revoked its license for improperly storing bodies and giving a man the wrong ashes.
The suit filed this week in Jackson County Circuit Court accuses Marts Memorial Services and the couple that ran it of misconduct, fraud and misrepresentation.
It was filed on behalf of Matt and Morgan Miller, whose father, Kenneth Miller, died in February 2011. The suit alleges that there's no way to determine whether the ashes the siblings received were those of their father. The suit also alleged that there was an 11-day delay in sending his body to a crematorium.
Salvatore Mirabile, a lawyer for the funeral home's operators, didn't immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
