BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A Birmingham cemetery that abruptly closed last year could soon have a new owner.

According to U.S. Bankruptcy court records, the trustee for George Washington Carver Memorial Gardens filed an intent to sell the cemetery "as is" to Cedric McMillian for $18,000.

The cemetery closed in September 2013 and the owner filed for bankruptcy.

A hearing on the proposed sale will be held Jan. 23.
