BATON ROUGE - The state Attorney General's Office filed a petition today asking that a court remove the owner of an East Baton Rouge cemetery from his position.

The Attorney General filed the petition in state court against Lymus Washington, overseer of Gilbert Memorial Park on Greenwell Springs Road.  Spokesperson Amanda Larkins said their office has received numerous complaints claiming Washington was mismanaging the business and operating without a license.

She said nobody from Gilbert Memorial Park has held a valid license since Jan. 2003, but that an AG's investigation revealed Washington has kept conducting business there.

Gilbert Memorial Park has existed as a cemetery since the early 20th century.
