Sen. Tyler Johnson (R-Leo) faces allegations of malpractice in the death of a 20-year-old woman. He won the seat vacated by long-time Senator Dennis Kruse in portions of Allen and DeKalb counties in 2022.
Johnson is a doctor with Professional Emergency Physicians which provides emergency room physicians for Parkview Health – a hospital system that runs 10 hospitals in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.
