We’re learning more about a lawsuit filed by the partner of a man who committed suicide in the Noble County Jail in 2017.

It’s the lawsuit that names Shane Coney, the new commander of the Kosciusko County Jail. Coney was jail commander in Noble County at the time. The lawsuit says Markus Middleton was depressed and bipolar but was refused mental health treatment. The suit also says Middleton was mocked by jailers and inmates because he was gay.
