ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — The remains of an Ohio man who admitted beating his wife to death in 1993 have been buried inches from her grave, a decision the woman's daughter calls horrifying.

The Chronicle-Telegram reports ( ) that the cremated remains of Marvin Dallas were buried this year over the grave of his wife, Mary Dallas, in Elyria, as outlined in his will.

Elyria Law Director Scott Serazin says it's typical for husbands and wives to be buried together, but he and the funeral home didn't know Marvin Dallas was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his wife's beating death.

Mary Dallas' daughter Crystal Denn says she's now working to have Marvin Dallas' remains moved. Marvin Dallas' family says they don't want to move his remains because that's where he wanted to be buried.
