Jeffrey Marreel inquest continues

October 14, 2010
CD 98.9

Day two of an inquest into the death of a Delhi man in June of 2008 found a senior OPP officer saying he had no choice but to use his taser. 36 year old Jeffrey Marreel died at Norfolk General Hospital after being hit with a taser by OPP in Fishers Glen. The cause of Marreel's death is said to be acute cocaine poisoning. Staff Sergeant Dean Skelding told the court five officers were struggling with Marreel and he put his taser on stun mode and delivered three shocks to the man's body. The officer claims Marreel did not respond to being tased. The inquest continues today.
