HARTFORD, Conn. Attorneys for relatives of a Connecticut lawyer found fatally shot in a wrecked vehicle are planning to challenge a court ruling, allowing a prosecutor to refuse to answer questions about how he determined that there was no evidence of a murder.
Gugsa Abraham Dabela was found dead in his wrecked Mercedes in the near of his Salvation house in 2014. The medical examiner about his death a suicide. Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III concluded that there was no evidence of a murder.
Dabela’s father thinks that his son is murdered, and continues the Rescue of the police over the handling of the investigation. Sedensky declined to answer questions about his opinion during a deposition, citing executive privilege.
Dabela family lawyers say they will appeal a federal judge’s ruling last week that Sedensky is not to answer those questions.
