An inmate has died at a jail in the United Kingdom after being left lying on the ground of her cell without food or medicine for nearly a day, according to an inquest. Annabella Landsberg, who was diabetic and HIV positive, was reportedly restrained by four officers at HMP Peterborough in southeast England on Sept. 2, 2017. She was asked to stand up to receive her medication, but said she couldn't because she was having difficulty standing. One officer, Amy Moore, said when she attempted to step over Landsberg, the inmate grabbed her legs, which was when the other officers restrained her as she lay on the ground.
