A DeKalb County jury took nearly two weeks of trial and four days of deliberations to award more than $2.3 million in a medical malpractice trial accusing staff at the Emory Clinic and Emory Healthcare Inc. of inflicting injuries on an elderly woman that allegedly led to her death.

The jury cleared three of four health care providers of liability in the 2014 death of 74-year-old Jayne Fox, but found one doctor and his employer, The Emory Clinic, at fault for inserting a breathing tube that damaged her vocal cords, leading to pneumonia blamed for her death more than a month later.
