Court says insurer not liable in death of Tenn. deputy
Sgt. Hubert Yancey was fatally shot during a meth lab raid by fellow officer Marty Carson
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The insurance company that footed the bill to defend a Scott County deputy against allegations he intentionally killed his partner does not have to pick up the $5 million tab a jury assessed against him, a state appellate court has ruled.
The ruling means the widow and children of slain Scott County Sgt. Hubert "John-John" Yancey, who already contend they've been robbed of justice in the November 2003 fatal shooting, may not collect a dime in the civil penalties assessed against former lawman Marty Carson.
