HEMPSTEAD (AP) — A grand jury has resumed considering the case of Sandra Bland, the black woman who died in a Texas county jail three days after her arrest in a traffic stop last summer.
A team of special prosecutors are presenting evidence Wednesday before the same Waller County jurors who last month declined to indict anyone in Bland’s death.
The 28-year-old woman was found with a plastic bag tied around her neck in her cell at the jail about 50 miles northwest of Houston. A medical examiner ruled her death a suicide.
Bland had just accepted a job at Prairie View A&M, a historically black college in the nearby town of Prairie View. She graduated from the university in 2009.
Still unresolved is whether the trooper who arrested her should face charges.
Prosecutors have declined to be specific about Wednesday’s session, one of them saying only that they have no timetable.
