    Lawyer: Alan Gross ‘plans to end his life’
    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    HAVANA — The wife and lawyer of a U.S. government subcontractor
    imprisoned in Cuba say they fear for his life after his mother’s death
    from cancer last week.

    Judy Gross is in Havana to visit her jailed husband, Alan Gross. She
    says in a statement she worries he will “do something drastic now that
    his mother is gone.”

    Alan Gross launched a hunger strike in April to urge Washington and
    Havana to strike a deal for his release. He ended the protest at the
    request of his mother, who died June 18 in Texas.

    Scott Gilbert is the Grosses’ lawyer. He said in Wednesday’s statement
    that “Alan plans to end his life in an effort to end this agony.”

    Gross has been behind bars since 2009. He is serving a 15-year sentence.
