Grand Jury Returns No Murder Indictment for Columbus Teacher

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--A Franklin County grand jury has declined to return a murder indictment for  a Columbus teacher, originally arrested for the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

Shanara Culbreath was arrested in April for the death of Vincent Mills, who lived with her at an apartment on the city's northeast side. The incident followed a loud argument that prompted calls to 9-1-1 by neighbors.

Culbreath's attorney, Jason Sarver, says his client cooperated with the investigation, and the evidence from the case pointed to self-defense.

The grand jury returned their decision not to indict on Wednesday, and Culbreath was released from custody.

Culbreath was a teacher at Woodward Park Middle School at the time, and was reassigned by Columnbus City Schools until the case was resolved. Sarver indicates that Culbreath will look to get her old job back.

Sarver also said he does not fault authorities for taking Culbreath into custody until the evidence was presented in her favor.
