Plainview Family Appeals Federal Judgement

Jose Ceballos Jose Ceballos

A Plainview family appeals after a federal judge rules the city's police department is not at fault for their son's death. "I heard the shot, and I told my husband they killed my son," Carmen Ceballos told NewsChannel 11 in September of 2006.

Carmen filed the civil suit following the September 2006 death of her son, 34-year-old Jose Ceballos. Police say Jose locked himself and his parents inside their home on Date Street. Jose's sister called authorities for help.

Officers say they heard a disturbance inside. The parents say it was Jose telling the officers to leave. Authorities kicked in the door and discovered Jose holding a knife. Officers say he advanced, but the family says that's not true.

Carmen claimed wrongful death, but Judge Sam Cummings ruled the city and three police officers named in the suit are not at fault. Now, the Ceballos family is appealing that decision to the fifth circuit court of appeals.
