WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida prosecutor chose not to file criminal charges against a police officer who shot dead black musician Corey Jones and said on Wednesday he would turn the case over to a grand jury.

    State Attorney Dave Aronberg of Palm Beach County told a news conference that prosecutors would hand over evidence from their investigation of fired police officer Nouman Raja to the grand jury to decide whether to press charges.
