No Charges Against Stepdad Who Killed Stepdaughter

There will be no charges against a stepfather who shot and killed his stepdaughter.

The decision came from a grand jury.

According to police, on the morning of Dec. 23, 2013, Daniel Meade woke up and heard what he though was someone breaking into his home. He grabbed a gun and shot the presumed intruder, who was climbing into the house through a window. It was his 14-year-old stepdaughter Kiana O'Neil.

O'Neil died after being taken to a hospital.

Police had been called to the scene on reports of a "burglary in progress," and say they found O'Neil when they got there.

Meade was never arrested.
