A lawsuit is being filed by the estate of an inmate who was pepper-sprayed and beaten to death at Garner Correctional Institute in Newtown this Spring.  J’Allen Jones was handcuff at the time and suffered a broken neck.  The state medical examiner ruled the 31-year old's death a homicide, but said that does not necessarily mean prison staff acted inappropriately.  The Georgia man was serving a 10-year prison term for robbery.  The Newstimes reports that the suit will accuse 10 correctional officers of being unfit for duty, and will also name Garner's warden and the Corrections Commissioner as defendants.
