Wrongful Death Suit Filed in 6-Year-Old's Death

The parents of 6-year-old Sierra Rein Clark have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Marcos Juares Gonzalez and his wife, Eulalia Gonzalez, after their daughter died from falling onto the Gonzalez’s electrified fence. Gonzalez was arrested February 17 and charged with criminally negligent homicide. Reports state that Sierra was playing in the backyard with her brothers when she fell onto the electrified fence Gonzalez had placed around his property. “District Attorney Joe Black said earlier that Gonzalez had electrified the fence to keep predators from getting into his chickens, ducks and rabbits. Black said the fence was improperly wired.”
