HEMPSTEAD, Texas (AP) — A grand jury has decided that no felony crime was committed by the sheriff’s office or jailers in the treatment of Sandra Bland, the black woman who died in a Southeast Texas county jail last summer.

But prosecutors say the grand jury reached no decision on whether the trooper who arrested the 28-year-old woman should face charges.

The grand jury will return in January to consider that issue.
