Maine men charged with digging up 2 relatives

Three men are charged with digging up the cremated remains of two relatives and moving them to another cemetery in Maine.

Authorities say 71-year-old Calvin Lewis of Limington, 37-year-old Hiram resident Travis Lewis and 42-year-old Kevin Lewis of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, are charged with abuse of a corpse.

Police say the men dug up the remains of Richard Lewis and the son who shared his name from a cemetery in Standish last fall, then reburied them in the family plot in Limington. The elder Richard Lewis was Calvin Lewis' brother and the father of the other two men.

The remains were returned to their original resting place on Aug. 2.

Kevin Lewis tells the Portland Press Herald the men "just thought we had a right" to move family members.
