Parents cleared in 3-year-old's death

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS - The 14th Judicial District's Grand Jury declined to charge two parents in the death of their son.

Three-year-old Gavin died on July 14 from a "self-inflicted gunshot wound" after a possible accidental discharge of a gun.

Michael and Joni Stiles were cleared on Thursday. The Grand Jury concluded it was not appropriate to charge the parents based on criminal negligence.

Michael is an officer with the Steamboat Police Department. He is currently on an unpaid leave of absence.
