Followup NC: No Charges for Greg Spinella in Shooting Death of James Franklin Stepp III

Newman said HPD conducted a thorough investigation, and the evidence included some video footage, witness statements and results from an autopsy HPD officers were in attendance for. North Carolina is on the side of Spinella in the incident, according to Newman.

″...the law supports what this man did. It is difficult, it is tragic, yes. This is not the way we want people to handle their disputes, but the facts are compelling that this is an act of self-defense, and for that reason I will not be submitting an indictment to the grand jury,” Newman said.

Newman said the case would not win a conviction in court, and that he and HPD were “very much in agreement” about the results of the investigation.
