$1.5 Million Awarded in Wrongful Death Case
The Arizona Daily Star reports two Tucson sisters whose parents were murdered by their grandson in 2005 will receive $1.5 million.
The sisters filed the wrongful death lawsuit against the grandson’s doctor, COPE Community Services, and Community Partnership of Southern Arizona for allowing him to remain in the care of the family instead of putting him in a mental health facility.
The physician settled with the sisters, but COPE and CPSA allowed the charges to go to trial. The jury found those organizations 50 percent responsible for the award amount, the doctor 25 percent responsible, and the grandson 25 percent responsible.
The grandson is serving two concurrent life sentences in the Arizona State Hospital.
