DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
A DeKalb County man will have to re-live the burial of his father. Paul Phillips was buried in the wrong plot.
Wednesday morning, the Phillips' family reluctantly agreed to move his body after meeting with a judge.
57-year-old Paul Phillips was laid to rest in May of 2011 after suffering a massive stroke.
Phillips was buried in the Old Sardis Cemetery in Powell, but cemetery officials eventually realized he had been buried in a plot purchased by another family.
This summer, the cemetery sought a ruling from a Jackson County judge to deal with the issue.
Chris Phillips said he has fought efforts to move his father but Wednesday agreed to a settlement to move his casket two plots over to the correct grave site.
The cemetery will take care of all costs. Chris said it was the cemetery that was at fault, but it is he and his family who are paying the price.
"I wouldn't wish it on anybody - the stuff that I went through with him dying and everything and having to bury him and then this about having to dig him up and move him again. All the pain I had from losing my dad, it's happening all over again," said Chris.
Paul Phillips will be reburied in the next several days.
Chris said the cemetery offered to allow for another ceremony, but he said he just can't deal with that.
