Thirty-eight-year-old Satterfield died March 17 after he stopped breathing at the Decatur County Jail in Greensburg. Brewsaugh's filing accuses jail officials of negligence.
Sheriff Greg Allen declined comment, but he has said Satterfield died at a hospital after jail officers called an ambulance because he was incoherent. A preliminary autopsy found Satterfield died of natural causes, but a final ruling is awaiting results of toxicology tests.
Satterfield was serving a 14-day sentence for drunk driving.
