CHARLESTON – A woman is suing a funeral home, alleging it mismanaged her infant son's ashes and failed to deliver the services she paid for.

Alisha Campbell filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Preston Funeral Home Inc.

When the funeral home told her an urn and a locket she paid for were ready, she went to pick them up, only to find her son's name had been misspelled on both, the lawsuit said. Additionally, the home had lost some of her son's ashes, the lawsuit said. 

The funeral home failed to reply to the plaintiff's attempts at communication, the lawsuit said.

The funeral home is accused of negligence and violation of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act, unfair and deceptive acts and practices and unjust enrichment and breach of contract.

Campbell seeks a jury trial and any compensation the jury sees fit to award, attorney fees and court costs. She is represented by Troy N. Giatras of The Giatras Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.

The case has been assigned to Judge Tera Salango.
