Investigation planned on jail inmate’s death at hospital
GERING, Neb. (AP) — A grand jury will examine the death of a jail inmate at a western Nebraska hospital.
Scotts County Attorney Dave Eubanks says 23-year-old Corey Green died Friday at Regional West Medical Center. He’d been arrested earlier in the day on a warrant and booked into jail. Eubanks says Green later complained about a medical problem, so he was taken to the hospital, where he died. An autopsy was ordered.
Nebraska law requires that a grand jury examine the death of anyone in custody or while being apprehended.
