The mother of a young, black man fatally shot while handcuffed in the back seat of a police cruiser has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against two Jonesboro, Ark. police officers, their chief, and the city.
Attorneys for Teresa Carter filed the action one year after officers Ronald Marsh and Keith Baggett claimed while they were not looking, Chavis Carter shot himself with his hands cuffed behind his back.
Police Chief Michael Yates stands by claims that Carter committed suicide.
