A woman who lost her baby after being shot when she was five months pregnant wont be charged with manslaughter, prosecutors say.

The charge against Marshae Jones, 27, stemmed from a shooting after a fight in Pleasant Grove, Alabama in December.

It was argued that Jones initiated the physical fight with 23-year-old Ebony Jemison over the father of Jones unborn child. It was during that argument that Jones was shot.

The shooting caused Jones to have a miscarriage.

Police initially charged Jemison in the death of the unborn child. But jurors ruled Jeminson fired the gun in self-defense and deemed that Jones was responsible for the loss of the unborn child.

The arrest of Jones on June 26 caused national outrage.

Bessemer Cutoff District Attorney Lynneice Washington said there will be no further action against Jones.
