New details have emerged in the brutal slayings last year of Sheri Coleman and her two young boys, Garett and Gavin.

Police believe Christopher Coleman killed his wife and children on the very day he told his mistress, Tara Lintz, that he planned to file divorce papers. Instead, police allege that Coleman strangled to death his family as they lay sleeping.

Coleman allegedly planned to start a new family with Lintz, telling her of his plans to have a vasectomy reversal. The two even toyed with what names they'd call their children.

The Post-Dispatch this morning has further details, including new allegations that:
  • Tara Lintz was so sure that she would marry Coleman that she was searching online from her home in Florida for new houses and wedding dresses in St. Louis
  • Sheri Coleman told friends she didn't want a divorce and that Coleman had allegedly beaten her
  • Coleman's employer, Joyce Meyer Ministries, allegedly told Sheri that it would fire Coleman if he divorced his wife.
