Mother Won't Be Charged In Death Of Her Son, Left Unattended In a Hot Truck

Houstonian Amanda Boone created a lot of talk earlier this year when she left her small kid in her truck on a hot August day as she went to work.

Cameron Boone, 3, died, and everyone, it seemed, had an opinion as to what degree his mother should be held responsible.

The only opinions that really mattered -- those of a Harris County grand jury -- have come in, and they've decided to no-bill her in regards to the death.

"Grand jurors were provided with all the relevant facts in this case," District Attorney Kenneth Magidson said in a release. "They reviewed that evidence and chose not to indict. We respect their decision."
