HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut prosecutors say they won’t appeal a Hartford judge’s ruling that ended the prosecution of a man accused of hosting a teenage drinking party that led to the death of a high school student.

The Hartford Courant reports (http://cour.at/1Jw2Vtl ) a Superior Court judge in May dismissed most of the charges against 51-year-old Paul Sibiga, of Marlborough, that included reckless endangerment and permitting minors to possess liquor.

Police had said a teenager left a party in woods Sibiga owns in Marlborough. He lost control of his car and went off the road near Hebron, killing Paige Houston, a passenger.

Tolland State’s Attorney Matthew Gedansky says that after prosecutors researched the issue, they concluded that it was unlikely they’d succeed with an appeal.
