TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police are facing a lawsuit over the death of an elderly woman who was found unconscious in her home last year.

The Arizona Daily Star reported (https://bit.ly/1EqIrL4) Sunday that the children of Joan Allman filed a wrongful death lawsuit last week in Pima County Superior Court.

The city of Tucson, Tucson police and a former officer are named in the suit, which did not specify damages.

City Attorney Mike Rankin says he could not comment since he has yet to review the lawsuit.

According to court documents, Officer Lenny Wong was called to check on Allman, who was in her 70s, in June 2014. Her family alleges Wong didn’t check her vital signs and called a medical examiner.

They believe she died because of an “unreasonable delay in treatment.”
