KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas board alleges in a lawsuit that a pathology assistant performed autopsies without the proper oversight.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts also alleges that Shawn Parcells made medical diagnoses and represented himself as a medical examiner and pathologist. Parcells was involved in the autopsy of Michael Brown after the black teenager was fatally shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

Parcells was barred last month from working in Kansas because of a civil lawsuit filed by the Kansas Attorney General's Office. He's accused of violating the state's False Claims Act and the Consumer Protection Act.

In a court filing, Parcells has denied representing himself as a physician and said the board doesn't have oversight because he's not a health care provider.
