PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A grand jury in Marion County dismissed manslaughter charges against 3 people accused in the death of Todd Federico in May 2015.

Ten witnesses testified to the grand jury, who considered all the evidence presented and determined there was not enough evidence to send the accused to trial.

All charges against William Craig Torassa, 57, Susan Marie Torassa, 50, and Joshua Ben Johnson, 32, were dismissed, the Marion County District Attorney’s Office said.

Federico was found lying unconscious and not breathing on the floor of a home in the 2000 block of SE Robins Lane on May 20.  Police came to the scene after the report of a fight.
