A Cumberland County man filed what he called a “multi-million dollar” lawsuit in the Durham County Courthouse on Monday, alleging that a Fayetteville-based manufacturer was responsible for his wife’s death at work in 2015.

Gerard Winfrey announced in a press conference outside the courthouse on Monday that he was seeking damages for the death of his wife Sherion Winfrey – who died while working in a non-air-conditioned part of the Mann+Hummel Purolator Filters plant in Fayetteville in June 2015.
