Family Suing for $10 Million after Inmate Dies Behind Bars

JACKSON, Miss.- The family of a man who died while behind bars at the Neshoba County Jail in 2014 is suing the jail for $10 million.

The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit, seeking millions in damages. Defendants are the Neshoba County Sheriff’s Department, Philadelphia Police Department and its officers.

The suit alleges Michael McDougle was beaten and was refused medical treatment.

Philadelphia police said McDougle was arrested after officers responded to a burglary. He was also charged with resisting arrest.
