HALE CENTER, TX (KCBD) -

The Hale Center man who police say shot and killed his daughter's boyfriend will not be facing charges.

According to the Hale County District Attorney's Office, manslaughter charges against Ronald Lynn Trisler, 49, have been dropped.

The case was taken to a Hale County Grand Jury who decided not to indict Trisler. However, we may never know why they decided against the indictment because  grand jury meetings are secret.

Back on February 13th, Hale Center police responded to a domestic dispute in the area. When they arrived, police say they found Ray Fernando Rodriguez Jr., 30, shot in the torso.

He was then taken to a Plainview emergency room where he died from his injuries.
