WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — The former nurse charged in the case of a man who died in the Forsyth County Detention Center has pleaded not guilty.
John Neville died in December 2019 after suffering a medical emergency while in custody. His autopsy showed that he suffocated while being held down.
According to the Winston-Salem Journal, the trial date has not been set. They also report that Heughins filed a motion earlier this month to dismiss the charge.
A $3 million settlement was reached between Neville’s family, Forsyth County and the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
