A grand jury has decided no crime was committed when black detainee Sandra Bland died in custody in Texas last summer.
Bland, 28, was found dead in a jail cell in Waller County, Texas, three days after she was arrested for a traffic stop in July earlier this year.
Her family filed a lawsuit, accusing Waller police of subjecting her to unwarranted brutality in custody.
But on Monday 21 December 2015, prosecutor Darrell Jorden announced the grand jury could not decide whether the trooper that arrested Chicago-based Bland should face charges.
The grand jury will return in January to re-consider the case.
