Judge freezes money raised in Chardon Healing Fund amid lawsuit

GEAUGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Judge Timothy Grendell ruled on Wednesday that The United Way is not allowed to use, distribute, disburse or release any money from The Chardon Healing Fund without getting written permission from the court until at least the next hearing.

That is scheduled for June 7 at noon.

The families of the Chardon shooting victims are suing United Way.

The organization set up The Chardon Healing Fund to help those families affected by last year's high school shooting.

The families say the fund raised nearly $1 million, but they have only received 15% of the money.

On Feb. 27, 2012, 18-year-old TJ Lane opened fire in the Chardon High School cafeteria. He killed 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Demitrius Hewlin and 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor. Three other victims were injured in the shooting.

TJ Lane was convicted and sentenced to life in March. He is currently appealing his conviction.
