A prosecutor says no one will be charged in the death of a woman after a central Ohio neighborhood brawl that initially led to rioting charges against several adults and juveniles.

Pickaway County Prosecutor Judy Wolford tells The Columbus Dispatch a grand jury declined to indict the adults on involuntary manslaughter charges in the death Brittany Jeffers, 21, of Circleville. Wolford says it's not clear what exactly caused the bleeding in Jeffers' brain, and authorities don't have enough evidence from the March brawl to charge any juvenile in her death.

Rioting counts against three adults were dropped. The case against one Circleville woman continues.

The Circleville Herald reports a 14-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl were put on temporary house arrest. Related cases against two boys still are pending.
