Altavista, VA - No charges will be filed in the shooting death of an 83-year-old Altavista woman.

Roanoke Commonwealth's Attorney Donald Caldwell has reviewed the case and says Delma Towler's death was a justifiable homicide... and no charges will be filed.

Towler was shot and killed by an Altavista Police Officer at her home last September.

Caldwell says his investigation included reviewing the footage from the lapel cameras worn by two officers, including Sergeant Rigney, who fired the shots.
