Disturbing allegations were raised in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday concerning the storage and preservation of a state inmate's remains.

Brandon Dotson died Nov. 16 at Ventress Correctional Facility in Barbour County. The Dotson family attorney says that was the same day he was to be considered for parole.

The family says they spent days trying to claim his body for a funeral according to court filings. When the body was released the lawsuit contends it was so badly decomposed they were unable to have an open casket.
