— The Franklin County district attorney said he is not pursuing criminal charges in a suspicious death.

District Attorney Sam Currin said an autopsy shows 43-year-old Virginia Kelly died of an accidental drug overdose.

Kelly had bruises and a ruptured spleen that have yet to be explained or investigated.
