Attorney General Suing Amigone Funeral Home Over Crematory

October 1, 2013 Updated Oct 1, 2013 at 3:58 PM EDT

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) - New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and State DEC Commissioner Joe Martens is suing Amigone Funeral Home over it's Sheridan Park crematory.

The crematory was shut down last year after residents passed around a petition, complaining of strong odors and dark smoke.

Last month, the Tonawanda Town Board voted to support that closure.

A.G. Schneiderman's lawsuit is to prevent Amigone Funeral Home from ever reopening its crematory.
