Coroner sued in death of suspect

DAYTON

A lawsuit has been filed in the 2011 death of a handcuffed burglary suspect who authorities say jumped from an Ohio bridge after escaping police by breaking a cruiser window with his head.

The family of 20-year-old Kylen English filed the lawsuit Monday against the Montgomery County coroner over his finding of suicide.

The lawsuit says no evidence supports a suicide finding and asks the court to direct the coroner to change his ruling to “indeterminate but not by suicide” and issue a new death certificate.

The family last year sued the city of Dayton, a police officer and a local hospital, claiming negligence. That lawsuit is to go to trial in September.

The county prosecutor’s office, which represents the coroner, said Wednesday it hadn’t received the lawsuit.
