No charges will be filed in April homicide

Gladstone Drive

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – No charges will be filed in connection to an April homicide of a Fort Wayne man.

The Allen County Prosecutor ruled Wednesday that the death of Darrell King, 45, was the result of self-defense.

King died on April 5. Police said he got into a fight and was found unconscious in the 2000 block of Gladstone Drive. He was declared dead at the hospital.

The preliminary autopsy results were that he died of asphyxia due to neck compression and position. That means some kind of pressure on the neck, from hands or an object, caused King to not be able to breathe.

According to Wednesday’s release from the Allen county Prosecutor, the investigation was completed by the Fort Wayne Police Department.
