A Cumberland County jury has awarded $5.45 million to the mother of a former lawman gunned down in May 2006 by brothers Rocky and Leon Houston.
"No amount of money can touch the hole in my heart," said Pat Brown of Rockwood. "Money can't do that."
The jury awarded Brown $5 million in punitive damages less than an hour after finding the Houston brothers liable for the May 2006 shooting death of her son, Mike Brown. At that time, the jury awarded Brown $450,000 in compensatory damages.
