The mother of a 32-year-old woman killed in a Chicago high-rise apartment blaze earlier this month has filed a wrongful death lawsuit. The suit alleges building management’s lack of a sprinkler system is directly to blame for her daughter’s death.

JoAnn McCoy, whose daughter Shantel perished in the January 8th fire, also claims building management “failed … to warn [the victim] of a fire” and “allowed [the victim] to use the elevators when [building management] knew or should have known it was not safe to do so.”

The fire injured nine others, including two firefighters.
