After a four-year court battle, a north Alabama man agrees to comply with the court order to remove his wife's body from his front yard.  James Davis testified at a hearing Wednesday in Jackson County.

Davis buried his late wife's remains outside their home in Stevenson back in 2009.  He says he will have her body exhumed and cremated now that the city of Stevenson won the suit to have the body removed. The plaintiffs argued the grave site should be considered an illegal cemetery.    

Davis agreed with the city's request to exhume the body on Friday.  He testified that the exhumation and an urn will cost $2,745.
