June 04, 2008|From the Associated Press

The widow of R&B singer Sean Levert filed a wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday against the Cleveland officials who were holding him in jail when he fell ill.

Levert, a member of the 1980s R&B trio LeVert and son of lead O'Jays singer Eddie Levert, died March 30 shortly after he was taken to a hospital.

In the lawsuit filed in federal court, Levert's widow, Angela Lowe, accuses his jailers of showing disregard for his medical needs. Levert, 39, was serving a 22-month sentence for failure to pay child support.

The county coroner has ruled that Levert died of natural causes.
