Trial of former Joyce Meyer bodyguard delayed

The first-degree murder trial of Christopher Coleman, accused of strangling his wife and two young sons, has been postponed until next year. The delay came after a flurry of defense motions was filed Friday, most of which concerned the state of Louisiana’s death penalty.

Coleman is the 33-year-old former head of security for Joyce Meyer Ministries in Missouri.

Police documents state that Coleman, who is in the Monroe County Jail without bail, wanted to divorce Sheri Coleman and marry his girlfriend, Tara Lintz, a Florida dog track waitress, was a high school friend of Sheri Coleman’s.
