BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Beverly Hills officials say a man under investigation in the death of his wife is using a lawsuit to try to force police to halt their four-year probe.

The Los Angeles Times reports the city has filed a motion to put Gary Klein's federal civil rights suit on hold pending resolution of the criminal case.

The newspaper cites legal documents that say the 59-year-old remains a person of interest in the ongoing investigation into the death of Rina Klein. She died in a hospital in May 2009 after suffering seizures.

Klein's suit says his mother-in-law duped investigators into believing he was responsible for his wife's death. It alleges harassment and intimidation by police.

A hearing on the city's motions has been scheduled for April 22.
