GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. Prosecutors have decided not to file charges against a man in the shooting death of his girlfriend in Glenwood Springs.
The Post Independent reports, the District Attorney's Office has determined that James "McCabe" Mallin's actions were reasonable despite the consequences.
The DA's office says Audrey Lowndes was intoxicated and "exhibiting unstable behavior" when she grabbed and loaded Mallin's gun on April 15.
The rifle discharged when Mallin tried to get it away from Lowndes, who was shot in the head.
Mallin, who called 911 and attempted to administer first aid, told the Post Independent he was relieved with the DA's decision and "all along I knew that I'd done nothing wrong."
