GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) -- Goodland police say an investigation into the death of a Kansas City, Mo., woman while she was jailed in western Kansas is nearly finished.

Police Chief Clifton Couch said Wednesday he expects to turn over investigative reports on the death of 58-year-old Brenda Sewell to the Sherman County Attorney later this week.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1jN8oOU ) the county attorney will determine if any charges are warranted in the case.

Sewell died at a Goodland hospital Jan. 22, two days after she was jailed in Sherman County. Her family alleges she became ill while in jail and county jailers did not try to help her when she collapsed in the jail cell. They say jailers also had refused to give Sewell medication she carried for several illnesses.
