The Associated Press is reporting that a man from the city of Cleveland has intentions to file a wrongful death claim. The man is asserting that his mother's death may have been prevented if police had kept a suspect in custody in relation to another case. The body of the man's mother was found inside the home of a sex offender along with 11 other dead bodies.
22-year-old Andrew Dancy issued his comment on Wednesday. He is one of the five victims' relatives who are planning to sue the city of Cleveland and the city's police over the deaths of their loved ones.
Allegedly, the five women had disappeared sometime after the suspect, 51-year-old Anthony Sowell, was arrested and held for two days by police in December 2008.
Sowell has entered a plea of not guilty in response to all 11 deaths and his trial is expected to occur in February. If he is convicted, he may face the death penalty. However, Dancy has said that he hopes Sowell has to spend the remainder of his life in solitary confinement for his crimes.
At this time, the city of Cleveland is not commenting on the litigation.
