Three years after Howard Hyde died in a Halifax-area jail cell, a provincial court judge says his death was accidental and not the result of excited delirium.
Judge Anne Derrick released her 462-page report on Wednesday after an 11-month inquiry into Hyde’s death.
The report contains 80 recommendations on bureaucratic changes in the provincial health and justice departments, more funding for all levels of mental health care and more training for police.
