Family of man who died after beating by prison guards seeks compensation, says state lacks accountability

Larry Earvin, 65, died in June 2018 from injuries a month after 13 prison officials beat him in a corridor of the Western Illinois Correctional Center where there were no security cameras, attorney Jon Erickson said at a news conference Wednesday outside the Thompson Center. Earvin, who was restrained during the assault, suffered 15 rib fractures, abrasions and hemorrhages, and fatal blunt trauma to the chest and abdomen, according to a federal indictment against three of the guards.
