Corpses Abused at Morgue
HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Federal Appeals Court hears arguments in a lawsuit brought by families of three people whose corpses were sexually abused at the Hamilton County Morgue.
In 2010, a judge sentenced former morgue worker Kenneth Douglas to three years in prison for having sex with two corpses at the morgue.
Douglas was already in prison on similar charges. Family members want to take their lawsuit to trial on civil rights claims. Both sides argued their case Tuesday morning before a three judge panel of the sixth circuit court of appeals.
A ruling could take several weeks.
