KBI: Authorities not at fault in jail death

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says there isn’t enough evidence to charge Johnson County authorities in the case of an inmate who died.

The KBI said Wednesday that 30-year-old Matthew Worsham died of acute ethanol withdrawal on Aug. 3. He was taken to a hospital after he was found unconscious at the Johnson County jail in Olathe. Worsham was serving the second day of a 48-hour sentence for driving under the influence.

The Johnson County District Attorney’s office says it won’t pursue charges.
