WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A civil lawsuit has been filed by the Landavazo family against Kody Lott and Bryan and Kristi Roland, the mother and stepfather of Lott.

Lott is accused of murdering Lauren Landavazo in September of 2016.

The Landavazos are suing for $1 million.

The lawsuit claims the Landavazo family is suing the defendants for negligence.

According to the lawsuit filed in the 89th district court on Wednesday, the plaintiffs claim the defendants provided Lott with access to the gun, ammunition, and vehicle necessary for him to shoot and kill Lauren Landavazo.

According to the suit, the Bryan and Kristi Roland left Lott with access to their apartment and their vehicles while on vacation.

The suit says Lott would use a gun and vehicle that belonged to the defendants to commit the crime.

The suit also claims that the defendants were aware of Lott's criminal history, which includes drug possession, theft, felony theft, and an armed standoff with law enforcement in Baylor County.

According to the suit, the standoff happened about a year before the shooting of Lauren Landavazo.

The suit claims that the defendants were also aware of Lott's unstable mental condition and that he had been sent to institutions for evaluation and treatment on several occasions.

News Channel 6 reached out to the family and their attorney on the pending lawsuit.

Right now, they are unable to comment.
