There will be no charges against any guards in the wake of the death of inmate Ronald Shoup at Sussex County Institution.

This comes despite the autopsy that ruled his death a homicide.

The decision announced by the Delaware Attorney General’s office said there were a number of reasons including a reasonable defense for correctional officers.

In addition, the Wilmington News Journal reports the state’s top law office said it was not possible to prove whether the injuries were the product of intent, recklessness or negligence.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The U.S. Department of the Interior says it has auctioned some 80,000 acres off Maryland for wind energy development.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management held an auction on Tuesday. US Wind Inc. submitted the winning bid of $8.7 million.

The Maryland Wind Energy Area is located, at its closest point, about 10 nautical miles off Ocean City. Federal officials say When fully built, the wind energy area could generate enough energy to power about 300,000 homes.
