Mother accuses police of torturing and murdering son in custody

The mother of a 28-year-old man who died in police custody says her son was tortured by the seven deputy sheriffs who have been charged with second-degree murder.

Irvo Otieno’s family said they had seen a 12-minute video of him being handcuffed, shackled and pinned to the ground with “the weight of seven individuals on his body” while being transferred from a jail to a state mental hospital in Virginia.
