SALINA, Kan. (AP) - The family of a girl who was electrocuted in Salina has settled a lawsuit against two companies, but their lawsuit against the city continues.

The family of Jayden Hicks sued Devonheir, doing business as Hope Electrical Products, and Consolidated Electrical Distributors, doing business as American Electric Co., after the 11-year-old girl was shocked while playing in the rain in Salina in May 2013. She was 12 when she died seven months later.

The two companies manufactured and sold an electrical junction box that was installed near Salina’s downtown plaza. Jayden was shocked when she came into contact with the metal cover of the box.
