Seeking wrongful death compensation.
(Chardon) - The families of the Chardon High School shooting victims have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against 18-year-old gunman T.J. Lane.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Lake County Court of Common, exactly one year after the tragedy.
On Tuesday, Lane pleaded guilty to six charges, including three of aggravated murder for the deaths of Demetrius Hewlin, Russell King Jr. and Daniel Parmertor.
The suit accuses Lane's parents, maternal grandparents and an uncle of negligently failing to supervise and control Lane, which "facilitated, encouraged and/or allowed" the shooting to occur.
They "knew or should have known that their negligent actions and omissions would result in severe physical and emotional injuries", the lawsuit alleged.
