The jury agreed with the parents of the young girl that the 1996 murder by convicted killer, Corey Hood while on probation and under the state’s supervision, was a wrongful death attributeable, in part, to the state’s inadequate supervision and the negligence of the car wash.

The wrongful death lawsuit verdict came after 5 hours of jury deliberation. eight days of trial and more than two and a half years since the wrongful death lawsuit was filed.
