Parker PD: No charges in fatal running store crash

For their part, Parker Police say they are not recommending charges against the woman who crashed into the running store.

KUSA - Editor's note: Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story reported that the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office had also determined that no charges would be filed in this case. Parker Police have clarified that they are declining to prepare a report recommending charges to the DA’s office.

Parker Police have decided not to recommend the district attorney's office file charges against the woman who drove through a running store in April, killing a 12-year-old girl. 

The district attorney's office said in a statement Tuesday afternoon they have not received an official notification from Parker Police that they have completed their investigation, and won't make a final decision until that is received. 

Parker Police said they met with representatives from the DA's office for advice on the case.

On Thursday afternoon, they said they will submit the case to the DA for official review. 

"This decision was not made because of new evidence or information, but to enhance transparency and ensure a just outcome," Parker Police said in a statement.
