MANDEVILLE, La. - A grand jury declined negligent homicide charges and returned a 'no true bill' in the January death of a Northshore teenager.

The District Attorney's Office said the finding was returned in connection with the death of 17-year-old Connor Guinn, who died of 'positional asphyxia due to alcohol toxicity,' according to the St. Tammany Parish Coroner.

The grand jury was considering negligent homicide charges against two of Guinn's friends.

A 'no true bill' indicates that the grand jury did not find enough evidence for an indictment.

Guinn was found dead inside of an apartment in the 600 block of Lafitte Street in January. Evidence on the scene indicated that alcohol was likely a factor. The coroner's finding said that due to alcohol in Guinn's system, he was unconscious and in a position that compromised his airway.
