State to probe Ohio inmate's 2007 death

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Attorney General's Office is investigating the 2007 death of a man who died shortly after his arrest.

Officers in Fremont in northern Ohio arrested 37-year-old Craig Burdine after responding to a call about a fight on Aug. 11, 2007.

Court documents say Burdine resisted and fought with deputies at the Sandusky County jail before they shocked him with a stun gun three times.

He died shortly after. A coroner found that the death was accidental and caused largely by drug intoxication.

A lawsuit filed by Burdine's alleging excessive force was dismissed, but the death is still under scrutiny.

The Toledo Blade reports (http://bit.ly/17aCanc) that the Attorney General's Office just took on the case and is determining whether a crime occurred and whether prosecution should be pursued.
