Family of Portland woman killed by ex-boyfriend file a $30M lawsuit against county and halfway house

PORTLAND, Ore. The family of a Portland woman killed by her ex-boyfriend while he was on work release from a Washington County halfway house has filed a $30 million wrongful death lawsuit against the facility and the county.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/2c79KUm) Eric Petersen is serving a life sentence for the 2014 death of 24-year-old Aimie Zdrantan, who was stabbed in her Hillsboro apartment.

The 26-year-old Peterson had been given a day pass from a minimum-security transitional facility when he violated a restraining order and went to the victim's apartment.

The lawsuit alleges the halfway house's lax policies contributed to Zdrantan's death. It also blames staff for letting Petersen leave without any electronic monitoring.
