The Lifetime TV network says it dropped a reality show about a Texas mortuary after eight decaying bodies were found at the facility and corpse abuse charges were brought against the co-owners.

"Good Grief" was slated to follow Dondre Johnson and his wife and Rachel Hardy-Johnson and the day-to-day life surrounding their business, the Johnson Family Mortuary in Fort Worth. The show was due to air July 23, The Associated Press reports.

Lifetime Networks vice president Les Eisner says the show "has not and will not air on Lifetime," reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

The Johnsons were charged last week after the building owner evicted the couple for non-payment of rent and discovered the decomposing bodies inside.

According to KDAF, a recently released arrest affidavit depicts, in chilling detail, the condition in which seven of the corpses were discovered at the mortuary. The document describes two decomposing children; one "was skeletonized" and the other "melted into the container." Another body was found "in a casket and was infested with insect activity and was mummified." In all, eight corpses were found. According to the affidavit, only one appeared to have been properly prepared.
