MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the estate of a woman who was fatally shot by a Monongalia County sheriff’s deputy.

The Dominion Post (bit.ly/1S86XM6) reports the Gregory S. Farmerie filed the lawsuit this week in Monongalia County Circuit Court against the sheriff’s office and others. Farmerie is the administrator of the estate of Christie Cathers, who was shot last June during a pursuit.

Sheriff Al Kisner declined comment on the lawsuit Friday.

A grand jury did not bring charges against two deputies involved in the shooting.

They were responding to a report of someone brandishing a knife when Cathers attempted to flee. Police say she drove her vehicle toward a deputy and struck the sheriff’s cruiser. Deputies fired into the moving vehicle, killing her.
