Girard woman reaches settlement in husband's death

Posted: Updated:

GIRARD, Ohio - The widow of a Girard man has reached a settlement in the lawsuit over her husband's death after he was repeatedly pepper sprayed in a Florida jail.

Nicholas Christie was visiting Naples in 2009 when he stopped taking his medications and started acting erratically.

Police arrested him on trespassing charges at a motel.

His wife, Joyce, brought the suit against the county's sheriff after the coroner ruled Christie's death a homicide.

Her attorney says the settlement was "well into the seven figures."
