More than two years after her death, the Ohio Attorney General has ordered a second autopsy in the Tanisha Anderson case.

Attorney General Mike DeWine's Office has asked an independent county coroner to conduct a second autopsy.

Earlier this year a judge ruled a medical examiner's report shouldn't be considered in Anderson's death investigation.

Tanisha Anderson died in November 2014 after officers were called to her home. She agreed to go to a hospital before struggling after getting into a cruiser.

The Medical office's report says she stopped breathing after being placed on the ground on her stomach, and that heart problems and mental illness contributed to her death.

The city has denied excessive force was used.

Anderson's body will not be exhumed. 

In February, Cleveland reached a $2.25 million settlement with the Anderson family.

The AG's office is investigating whether Cleveland police officers Scott Aldridge and Bryan Myers should be criminally charged their roles in Anderson's death.
