Widower files suit over OSU stadium death

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ A Tulsa man has sued Oklahoma State University over the death of his wife, who fell down and hit her head while attending her grandson's high school football championship game at Boone Pickens Stadium.

The Stillwater NewsPress reports (http://is.gd/Ktpgwm ) that Ronald Mayfield filed the lawsuit this week in the Dec. 9, 2011, death of his wife. The lawsuit says 66-year-old Charlotte Mayfield died after falling backward down a set of stadium steps.

The lawsuit alleges that the university was negligent in its construction of the steps.

 Mayfield is seeking at least $75,000 in damages. The university has not yet filed a response to the lawsuit.

 Charlotte Mayfield's death came less than a week after a dozen fans were injured in the stadium while celebrating Oklahoma State's win over Oklahoma.
