Prosecutor says no charges against slain WDBJ7 reporter’s father

wlni-fbROCKY MOUNT, Va. (AP) _ A special prosecutor says he will not seek criminal charges in a dispute between a state senator and the father of a TV reporter who was fatally shot during a live broadcast. Media outlets report that Danville Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Newman determined that justice would not be served by prosecuting Andy Parker, who became a gun-control advocate after his daughter’s death. Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward of WDBJ in Roanoke were killed by a former co-worker in August. State Sen. Bill Stanley told police he had been threatened by Andy Parker in a Facebook message in October. Parker later apologized. Newman said in a report filed this week in Franklin County Circuit Court that “given the totality of the circumstances,” charges would be inappropriate.
