24-year-old mentally ill man Jamycheal Mitchell, who was arrested and jailed in April 2015 for stealing $5.05 worth of soda and sweets, was left to starve to death over four months in a Virginia jail cell, his family alleges in a lawsuit. Mitchell was found dead in August, 40 pounds lighter, after jail staff allegedly denied him his meals and cut off the water to his cell, according to the lawsuit. Who is responsible for Jamycheal Mitchell’s death? We look at the allegations on the Lip News with Jo Ankier and Margaret Howell.
