Russia slams Texas D.A. over boy's death

Russia's child rights ombudsman slammed Texas prosecutors for deciding not to charge the adoptive parents of a Russian boy who died suddenly in January, Russia's RIA Novosti news agency reported Tuesday.

The Ector County district attorney's office said Monday that a grand jury declined to indict Laura and Alan Shatto, the adoptive parents of 3-year-old Max Shatto.

    I'm w/Russia on this 1! How in the world did a 3 yr old child cause this type of fatal injury to himself? I don't believe it & I'm a Texan, an American & a European! It doesn't make sense no matter where you live!!
