No charges will be filed for a Rockville doctor’s death, the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office announced Friday.
Chandrasekhar Korapati, 50, was found dead July 11 in his home at the 9800 block of Juniper Hill Road. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the death as a homicide.
Asphyxiation was the cause of death, according to police.
But on Thursday grand jury found that the actions related to Korapati’s death were “justified,” the State’s Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
As a result of the grand jury finding, no criminal charges would be brought.
The night before Korapati was found dead, he had gotten into a fight with his 19-year-old son and 20-year-old daughter, according to police.
His 19-year-old son was the one who called 911 after family members found him not breathing the next day.
Korapati was a doctor of nephrology and internal medicine.
