(AP) A woman has sued Fox News Network for airing live footage last fall of a suspect in a police chase committing suicide in the Arizona desert and not using a time delay that would have prevented the death from being broadcast on national television.


The lawsuit alleges the children of suspect JoDon Romero have suffered emotional distress from having seen the video of their father fatally shooting himself on Sept. 28 at the end of an 80-mile car chase.


The lawsuit was filed June 6 in metro Phoenix by the mother of Romero's three sons, ages 15, 13 and 9.


It was also filed against Fox Entertainment Group Inc. and Fox's parent company, News Corp.


The network says in a statement that it couldn't comment because of the pending litigation.
