Company seeks dismissal of suit filed after inmate's death

     TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) The company that manages the Bi-State Justice Center in Texarkana is asking a judge to dismiss a civil lawsuit filed after the death of a 20-year-old inmate, who was diabetic.
     Morgan Angerbauer was jailed last summer on a probation revocation warrant. She died early July 1 of diabetic ketoacidosis, which occurs when there isn't enough insulin in the body.
     A nurse at the jail has been charged with negligent homicide in the case, and a separate civil lawsuit against LaSalle Corrections is pending. The Texarkana Gazette reports that LaSalle has filed a motion to dismiss the civil case, arguing that attorneys for Angerbauer's estate have not shown that defendants are liable in the case.
