No Charges in Ronnie White Death

White, 19, was found dead in his jail cell in the maximum-security section of the Prince George's Corrections Center on June 29, two days after he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder for allegedly running down and killing Prince George's County police Sgt. Richard Findley in a stolen truck.

The state medical examiner ruled White's death a homicide, but corrections officers said White committed suicide. White suffered two broken bones in his neck and died of asphyxiation caused by strangulation, according to the medical examiner. In December, a grand jury concluded its deliberation in the investigation without taking action. The grand jury did not hear enough evidence to bring down indictments in the case, sources said.
