Sean Levert's widow wants someone to pay.

Angela Lowe filed a wrongful-death suit Tuesday against Cuyahoga County officials, claiming his jailers neglected her hubby's medical needs before his sudden death March 31, when he was about a week into his 22-month sentence for failing to pay child support.

County Coroner Frank Miller ruled that the 39-year-old Levert, who passed away shortly after being transported to a nearby hospital, died of natural causes—more specifically, of complications from the lung disease sarcoidosis. The singer, who along with his late brother Gerald and childhood friend Mark Gordon made up the R&B trio LeVert, also suffered from heart disease and was going through alprazolam (Xanax) withdrawal.

Lowe and Levert's estate are seeking unspecified damages.
