Family of intern slain in Del. Co. sues company
MEDIA, Pa. (AP) - April 8, 2011 -- The family of an intern strangled by his supervisor in suburban Philadelphia is suing the company where both men worked.
Shephard, of Cavalier, N.D., was studying sports marketing at Northern State University before taking a semester off for an internship at Daktronics, where he worked for Smithson. Shephard's body was found in a bedroom of Smithson's Glen Mills home where he'd been drugged and strangled.
Smithson is serving life in prison. Daktronics says in court documents it had no way of knowing Smithson "was capable of such a heinous act."
The Delaware County Daily Times reports jury selection begins Friday.
