LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - The widow of an east Arkansas police chief who collapsed after a high-speed pursuit will receive an additional $25,000 from the state for her husband's death.
    
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1H6U1T9 ) reports the Arkansas Legislative Council's Claims Review Subcommittee granted Matilda Bradford an additional $25,000 Monday. She was awarded $50,000 in September by the Arkansas Claims Commission.
    
Authorities say Turrell Police Chief Keith Bradford joined a pursuit with neighboring law enforcement on April 2, 2014, but the pursuit had ended by the time he reached the scene. Police say Bradford collapsed and died at Turrell City Hall from a heart attack about an hour and a half after the chase.
    
The Arkansas Claims Commission had rejected claims for more compensation because Bradford was not killed in the line of duty nor was his death the result of "exceptionally hazardous duty."
