WHEELING — A man is suing a doctor, alleging his negligence caused the death of a family member.
Chad Anthony, administrator of the estate of Marian Anthony, deceased, filed a complaint May 5 in Ohio Circuit Court against Dr. David A. Ghaphery, alleging the doctor violated the standard of care in treating Marian Anthony.
