Powell’s relatives visited the public Woodbine Cemetery and selected a plot about 25 feet from the boys, City Manager Ralph Dannenberg told the Associated Press. They haven’t paid for it yet, and any sale is on hold because the parents of Powell’s missing wife have promised legal action.

“We don’t have any rules or procedures regarding refusing plots to anyone,” Mr. Dannenberg said. “We’re going to wait to see what the outcome is in court.”

Powell was a suspect in Susan Powell’s 2009 disappearance from their home in West Valley City, Utah. He attacked his sons with a hatchet and blew up his house, killing himself and the two boys on Feb. 5.

Attorney Anne Bremner, who represents Susan Powell’s parents, Charles and Judy Cox, says she will seek a temporary restraining order to block Josh Powell from being buried there.
