ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - The estate of a former Franklin County deputy's wife has settled a wrongful death lawsuit against him and a former sheriff.


An attorney for Jennifer Agee's estate, Matt Broughton said that a circuit judge in Rocky Mountain approved the settlement Thursday.


Agee's children will receive $900,000 under the settlement. The lawsuit had sought $20 million in damages.


Agee's ex-husband, former Deputy Jonathan Agee, is charged with fatally shooting her at a Roanoke convenience store on May 30, 2011. He's charged with shooting and wounding a State Police trooper while attempting to flee.


The lawsuit claimed former Sheriff Ewell Hunt didn't warn authorities that his deputy was armed and had threatened to kill Jennifer Agee.
