City Settles With Owensby Family

The city of Cincinnati has reached a multi-million dollar settlement with the family of a man who died in police custody.

The city will reportedly pay $6.5 million dollars to the family and attorneys of Roger Owensby. In 2000 Owensby died in police custody after being arrested during a drug investigation. Officers Robert Jorg and Patrick Caton were both cleared of criminal charges in Owensby's death.

The Owensby family has not issued any statements about the settlement; however, Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory has.  We'll have his response to the resolution tonight on the FOX19 Ten O'clock News.
