CENTERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- Seven weeks after she hanged herself, Mary Kennedy was reburied in a Cape Cod cemetery 700 feet from her original grave.

Frank Maki, superintendent of the St. Francis Xavier Cemetery near Hyannis (hy-AN'-ihs), told The Associated Press on Saturday that Robert Kennedy's estranged wife was reburied earlier this month. She was first buried on May 19 near her husband's aunt and uncle, Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver.

Robert Kennedy Jr. reportedly asked that Mary Kennedy be exhumed and reburied on a hilltop surrounded by empty plots he's negotiating to buy.

Mary Kennedy hanged herself on May 16 in a barn by the couple's home in New York's Westchester County after he won temporary custody of their four children.
