The brother of figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was sent to jail Monday after failing required alcohol screenings while awaiting trial on manslaughter charges in the death of his father.
Bassil argued that over-the-counter cough syrup can have high alcohol content and asked Judge Joseph Walker to allow Kerrigan to remain free on bail.
Bassil told the judge she plans to try to retrieve the bottle of cough syrup from Kerrigan's house, have it tested for alcohol content and ask Kerrigan's mother to submit an affidavit to verify that Kerrigan did drink the medicine.
