SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (05/21/14) - The Saginaw County medical examiner has resigned because of a legal fight with Gift of Life.

Dr. Kanu Virani will continue to perform autopsies after he leaves his position June 1.

Virani is being sued over the amount of time it took to do an autopsy on 6-year-old Elijah Dillard, the boy who died from abuse on March 1.

Gift of Life says because of the way Dr. Virani handled the autopsy, Elijah's organs were not able to be donated.

Saginaw County maintains the autopsy was necessary as evidence against Elijah's parents.
