KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - The Benton County coroner says a Spokane man's Christmas Day death in the county jail was an accident and not caused by an earlier stun gun shock.
The Tri-City Herald reports (http://is.gd/9ppc5f ) that on Monday the Benton County Coroner released the results of Kevin Culp's autopsy, saying the inmate died of a condition related to a tonic-clonic seizure, formerly known as a grand mal seizure, while he was in a restraint chair in the jail.
The morning of Dec. 17 Culp had a medical problem and called nurses for help, but then became combative with two nurses and a corrections officer. Culp was shocked with a Taser and restrained.
Culp was in the jail as a contract inmate for the state Department of Corrections.
