CHILLICOTHE, MO – The Livingston County prosecutor says no charges will be filed following use of force by a deputy in March.

The Sheriff’s department, last month, said one person died due to an officer involved shooting incident in Wheeling, March 19 during an altercation with a suspect.

Prosecuting attorney, Adam Warren, , after reviewing evidence, said charges would not be filed related to the event that night, calling the deputy’s actions, “lawful and justified.”
