EL PASO - Police were called to Mount Carmel funeral home to enforce a court order that stopped a service Monday evening.
Police blocked the doorway of the funeral home after receiving court orders to stop the services for David Torres.
Torres was killed in a motorcycle accident in Austin last week. The fight is over his remains. His ex-wife, along with his estranged father were granted a court order that stopped Torres from being cremated.
His ex-wife wants 100% of his ashes sent to Belen, New Mexico were he's from. But his friends and common-law wife of four years want to split his ashes and keep half here in El Paso.
