Wow! I guess the DA's office felt they did not have enough evidence to convict. If I recall correctly, the guy had coffee mug fragments in his scalp? How does that happen by accident? Perhaps that report was inaccurate.

A good defense attorney could get to reasonable doubt easily and explain away the blunt force trauma that killed the man as a product of a fall down a stairway. That is the one of the problems with this case for the DA. They maintained the option of refiling charges at a later date.
