Widow sues for breach after husband’s body moved from grave

A widow whose husband’s body was moved from his grave without her knowledge is suing the town that operates the cemetery.

Carole Pomroy says she continued to visit the grave site and leave flowers for a “long time” after the town of Levant, Maine, had moved the body from the grave in Waugh Cemetery.   She apparently did not notice that the ground had been disturbed because of snow cover.  The town says that Mrs. Pomroy’s husband was erroneously buried in a plot already owned by someone else.  The town’s attorney says that they tried to contact Mrs. Pomroy, but were unsuccessful. 

She is seeking damages for breach of contract and emotional distress.
