OKLAHOMA CITY — The family of a man who died in police custody will receive $50,000 in a settlement with the city.

The medical examiner ruled Robin Howard died of pneumonia, caused by blunt force trauma to the chest in June of 2012.

Police officers say Howard resisted arrest during a traffic stop in 2012.

The two officers were on restricted duty, but the district attorney decided not to press charges.
