3 Indicted in Mathew Ajibade's Death in Ga. Jail

Two Georgia sheriff's deputies and a health care worker have been indicted for involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of a mentally ill man who was allegedly Tasered while in restraints and then left alone, NBC News reported. Mathew Ajibade, 22, was found dead Jan. 1 strapped to a chair inside an isolation cell at the Chatham County Jail after having been stunned with a Taser while he was restrained. The Chatham County grand jury in Savannah declined to charge the officer accused of using the stun gun with felony murder, but it did indict him on charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to an inmate.
