BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) - A southwest Ohio prosecutor’s office says there will be no criminal charges after the drowning death of a 5-year-old girl at a southern Ohio day camp for children with special needs.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1EvqUHe ) that the Clermont County sheriff’s office closed its investigation last week and prosecutors decided against charges in the July 30 death of Kylie Griffin. Assistant Prosecutor Scott O’Reilly says the investigation didn’t find reckless conduct.

The girl was found in a camp pond near Batavia (buh-TAY’-vee-uh), about 25 miles east of Cincinnati. O’Reilly says two staff members and two volunteers were with nine children when she wandered away shortly after a head count.

Chris Adams, the executive director of the nonprofit Stepping Stones camp, didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to a message for comment.
