A press conference held Friday at 11:30 a.m. by the Kern County District Attorney's Office regarding District Attorney Lisa Green's filing decision in the David Silva matter has come to a close.
Green said that the deputies who arrested Silva did not cause his death and the manner of the death was accidental.
Green said that the FBI hasn't formally filed their findings in their investigation, but Green said the FBI's reports weren't as thorough as the Kern County District Attorney's Office.
Green said that the District Attorney's Office hired an outside pathologist to investigate.
Green said that all force applied by deputies was within department policy.
David Silva's younger brother Chris Silva who was in the press room told 23 ABC News that at about 10:40 a.m. Friday, the DA has decided not to file charges in the beating death of his brother David Silva.
The Silva family said they met with Green in advance of the 11:30 a.m. press conference to announce her decision.
