Followup CO: No Charges for Desmond Manning in Shooting Death of Alexis Mendez-Perez

Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said in a statement Wednesday that she decided not to charge Desmond Manning, 46, in the killing of Alexis Mendez-Perez, 16, because there was not enough evidence for a jury to find Manning guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and to prove he wasn’t acting in self defense.
