OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The husband and son of a former state trooper say they did not kill her in 1998, disputing the conclusion of an inquest jury.

Ronald and Jonathan Reynolds said at a news conference Thursday that the accusations against them have been wrecking their lives.

An inquest jury last month found the Reynolds men responsible for the death of Ronda Reynolds. The coroner issued arrest warrants for the two men, but the county prosecutor said there’s not enough evidence to charge them criminally.

An attorney for the Reynolds men called the inquest a “sham” that included hearsay and flawed evidence that would not stand up in a criminal hearing. They say Ronda Reynolds killed herself.
