MILWAUKEE - A lawsuit stemming from the death of a teen after a parking garage collapsed in Milwaukee three years ago heads to court Monday.

Jared Kellner's family is suing the contractors who designed and built Milwaukee's O'Donnell Parking Garage.

The 15-year-old was walking to Summerfest when a 13 ton concrete panel fell from the garage, killing him and injuring another.

The lawsuit said part of the structure was defective and improperly installed.
