FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — An investigation has concluded an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot killed a 19-year-old northern Ohio man whose family challenged a ruling that it was a suicide.

State Attorney General Mike DeWine's office investigated the March 2012 death of Jacob Limberios (lihm-BEER'-ee-ohs) and had called a grand jury to consider testimony.

Authorities said Wednesday that the grand jury declined to bring charges in the case.

The Sandusky County coroner had ruled the death a suicide but also said the teen might not have known the gun was loaded.

His parents fought that ruling and hired a forensic pathologist to do an autopsy. He concluded the death was a homicide after the teen's body was exhumed last fall.

His parents told The Sandusky Register they'll work to get the death certificate changed to accident.
