Jailers not charged in Oklahoma inmate's strangulation death

A grand jury has determined that no charges will be filed against two Oklahoma jailers in the strangulation death of an inmate who was restrained by jail staff.

The Lawton Constitution ( ) reports that district attorney Jason Hicks released the grand jury's findings Monday.

Darius Robinson died in April in the Caddo County Detention Center. An autopsy determined that the 41-year-old Robinson died from asphyxiation caused by "manual compression of the neck."

The medical examiner classified Robinson's death as a homicide. The report says Robinson became violent and agitated, and that jailers used pepper spray and placed him in a neck hold to subdue him.

The grand jury did recommend ways to improve jail safety, including an annual review and allowing the jail administrator to monitor employee training progress.
