CHESTER – The Illinois Department of Corrections said the brother of a convicted murderer has resigned his job as a state prison guard.
Corrections Department spokesman Tom Shaer told the Belleville News-Democrat that 35-year-old Brad Coleman of Chester has resigned. Coleman is the brother of Christopher Coleman, who is serving a life sentence for strangling his wife and children.
Brad Coleman had applied for a disability award claiming post-traumatic stress disorder. Brad Coleman said constant worrying about his brother caused him to have PTSD.
