A grand jury is meeting this week in Box Butte County District Court hearing testimony regarding the death a Box Butte County Jail inmate.

31-year-old Kyle Stairs passed away on July 11.

The jury is expected to come to a decision this week and will return either a true or no true bill indicating whether Stairs died as a result of criminal action by law enforcement.

Box Butte County Attorney Kathleen Hutchinson is serving as the case prosecutor.

State law requires a grand jury be convened whenever someone dies while in custody of law enforcement.
