Family wins lawsuit vs. convicted killer

ELYRIA — The family of a woman shot to death by the man she was dating has won a $1 million lawsuit against the man convicted of killing her.

Kimberly Dove’s family sued Edmund Elwell before he was convicted, but he never mounted a defense to the lawsuit, according to court records.

Elwell, 49, is serving a 30-year-prison sentence at Mansfield Correctional Institution.
