Families angry over conditions at Kentucky cemetery

Some families say they're shocked and angry over the conditions at a Northern Kentucky cemetery.

Several graves have been destroyed, while others are in disrepair, at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Erlanger. That's in Kenton County.

Some graves are half-filled with dirt and water from melted snow. In other spots, markers were pushed into the ground, after being rolled over by heavy equipment.

One man says his wife of 60 years is buried in the cemetery.

"These people deserve better than that," Charles O'Donnell said. "They paid a lot for these monuments. It just isn't right."

The cemetery is operated by a company called Stonemore, which is based in Pennsylvania.

Their website isn't working, and they haven't returned calls to the media.
