Mom whose son’s death led to jail reforms wins settlement

ST. LOUIS (AP)- A mother whose son died less than an hour after he was transported from a Missouri jail to a state prison has won a $1.2 million settlement in a case that helped lead to suspensions, firings and reforms.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Angela Malcich claimed in the suit that nurses and guards at the St. Louis County Justice Center repeatedly ignored the serious medical distress of her son, Daniel Stout.

An autopsy blamed complications of an ulcer that perforated his intestine.

Four other inmates also died in the county jail in 2019, with an internal report finding that all of them had acted “strangely” beforehand and that most were denied medical care.
