WINTER PARK, Fla. — The family of a Winter Park High School student who was beaten to death has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

Investigators said Jesse Sutherland and Simeon Hall beat Trindade unconscious in downtown Winter Park's Central Park.

Trindade was removed from life support following a two-day hospitalization

The suit also alleges that Orange County Public Schools did not do enough to prevent gang violence.

Simeon and Hall were found guilty of manslaughter and battery.

Trindade's parents believe their punishments were too light.
