Rare legislative subpoena at center of political fight over jail death video

A rare legislative demand for evidence was issued by a Senate committee seeking video related to the death of a prisoner, but was rescinded by Senate President Kevin Meyer -- who said he thought better of the subpoena after first approving it.

The evidence was sought by Anchorage Republican Sen. Lesil McGuire, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, from an attorney in her husband’s law firm who represented the prisoner’s family in a wrongful death lawsuit against the state.

McGuire said she believes the judiciary committee needs to see the video, which reportedly shows the last days of Davon Mosley’s life as recorded from a solitary confinement cell at the Anchorage Jail.
