Anderson, who had mental health issues, died last November while being restrained by police. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner ruled her death a homicide.

Meantime, Cleveland's Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath has yet to decide whether or not Officers Aldridge and Myers violated at least a half dozen department policies, including use of force, when they arrested her.

McGrath got the case last month and has up to 90 days to make a decision on whether disciplinary action is warranted.
