Family Settles Out Of Court With Sheriff's Office


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - One of the court cases surrounding the death of 11-year-old Lakeisha White is over. A settlement has been reached between the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office and the family of the deceased girl. 

Ron Killings, a Rutherford County Detective at the time, was behind the wheel of his patrol car when he struck the little girl, killing her in the summer of 2008. 

NewsChannel 5 has learned that the family has reached a settlement, worth a little more than $200,000 in the civil case. 

Witnesses claim that the Detective refused to help the girl at first. 

The criminal case against Killings will begin next month. He's charged with reckless homicide.
