A grand jury in northern Ohio has found no probable cause to issue indictments in the 2007 death of an Ohio inmate.
Court documents say Burdine resisted and fought with deputies at the Sandusky County jail before they shocked him with a stun gun. He died shortly after.
A coroner found that the death was accidental and caused largely by his drug intoxication.
Sandusky County's prosecutor had requested a special prosecutor to review allegations from the Burdine family of criminal wrongdoing against public officials.
The Ohio Attorney General's Office agreed to serve as special prosecutors in 2013.
