I am acting as my husband's voice here.

You can't sue someone for murder. Murder is a crime, a specific intent crime.

Their cause of action would likely be Wrongful Death, in that, were it not for the grossly negligent actions of city actors, the victim would not have died. You would claim that the officials involved, given the perpetrators record, knew, or should have known, that he was dangerous and likely to offend again.
