Lawsuit filed over Jenni Rivera plane crash death

The husband of Jenni Rivera is suing the owners of the plane that crashed in northern Mexico in December 2012, killing the Mexican-American pop star and six others.

City News Service says former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Esteban Loaiza filed the wrongful death case Friday in Los Angeles.

Among other things, the lawsuit claims that the pilots weren’t licensed to fly paying passengers.

Rivera sold more than 15 million records.

The 43-year-old superstar filed for divorce from Loaiza two months before the crash, but the lawsuit says he continued to receive financial benefits from her.

A call to Mark Velasquez, a San Diego attorney representing plane owner Starwood Management, wasn’t immediately returned.

Mexico tests DNA from Jenni Rivera plane crash

 Mexican authorities were performing DNA tests Tuesday on remains believed to belong to Mexican-American music superstar Jenni Rivera and six other people killed when her plane went down in northern Mexico.

Investigators said it would take days to piece together the wreckage of the plane carrying Rivera and find out why it went down.

Authorities, meanwhile, began looking into the history of the plane’s owner, Starwood Management of Las Vegas. Another of its planes was seized in September by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in McAllen, Texas.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said it was sending a team to help investigate the crash of the Learjet 25, which disintegrated on impact Sunday with seven people aboard in rugged terrain in Nuevo Leon state in northern Mexico.
