Jury deciding who's to blame for 2010 Milwaukee parking garage death

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A jury in Milwaukee is about to decide who's to blame for the death of a 15-year-old boy who got crushed by a parking garage panel over three years ago. 

A civil trial is getting underway in connection with the death of Jared Kellner. He and two others were leaving a county-owned parking garage in downtown Milwaukee when a 13 ton decorative panel fell from the second floor of the garage. 

Kellner died. His friend Eric Wosinski was hurt along with Eric's mother Amy. They were heading to Milwaukee's Summerfest at the time.   

The Kellner and Wosinski families are suing Milwaukee County and the construction firm of Advance Cast Stone. 

The county blames the company, saying it used a faulty procedure for attaching the panel that fell to the outside part of the garage.
