STEVENSON, AL (WAFF) -
A Stevenson man fighting to keep his wife buried in the front yard of his home has taken steps to prevent a reburial.
Late on Friday, James Davis paid a bond to buy some time.
The plaintiffs had filed to find Davis in contempt on Thursday.
Davis arrived to the Jackson County Courthouse around 4 Friday afternoon with the $10,000 check to secure his appeal bond.
Davis's case is now headed to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals after a judge ruled this summer he had 30 days to dig up his wife following a trial earlier this year.
Davis buried his wife in his front yard in 2009, citing it was her dying wish. The city of Stevenson filed suit against Davis.
This summer a judge ruled in the city's favor giving Davis 30 days to remove her remains, but Davis is appealing his case to the court of civil appeals where he said he feels the court will side with him.
"Maybe in the end we're going to come out because there's no law against what we've done. Not a thing. And, hopefully, somebody is going to see this," said Davis.
Davis's attorney expects the appeal could last up to six months, maybe a year.
