      No indictments in Ohio inmate's 2007 death

      FREMONT, Ohio (AP) - A grand jury in northern Ohio has found no probable cause to issue indictments in the 2007 death of an Ohio inmate.

      A Sandusky County grand jury issued its findings Tuesday in the death of 37-year-old Craig Burdine of Oak Harbor. Fremont officers arrested Burdine after a report of a fight on Aug. 11, 2007.

      Court documents say Burdine resisted and fought with deputies at the Sandusky County jail before they shocked him with a stun gun. He died shortly after.

      A coroner found that the death was accidental and caused largely by his drug intoxication.

      Sandusky County's prosecutor had requested a special prosecutor to review allegations from the Burdine family of criminal wrongdoing against public officials.

      The Ohio Attorney General's Office agreed to serve as special prosecutors in 2013.(Copyright 2014 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
