Cemetery officials in Cincinnati have ordered a seven-foot tall headstone of Spongebob in an Army uniform be removed, saying the tribute to the Iraq war veteran is inappropriate for a traditional resting place. Kimberly Walker, 28, was found strangled and beaten to death in a Colorado hotel room in February, and her boyfriend, an Army soldier stationed nearby, has been charged with her murder. Walker’s family says she was a devoted Spongebob fan, and they had planned to erect a matching headstone for her twin sister, Kara Walker (Kara’s would be wearing a Navy uniform, since she is an information technician in the Navy). Cemetery officials said they will meet with the Walker family on Tuesday to discuss other options.
