An investigation into the arrest of a woman following a traffic stop earlier this summer and her death in a Texas jail cell three days later should be finished "within the next few days," a state official said Tuesday. Assistant Attorney General Seth Byron Dennis told a federal judge that the findings of the Texas Rangers’ investigation of the arrest of Sandra Bland would be turned over to the Waller County district attorney, then submitted to a grand jury probably mid to late October, to determine whether criminal charges are warranted. A medical examiner ruled Bland hanged herself July 13 at the Waller County jail, about 50 miles northwest of Houston. Bland’s relatives and supporters dispute that finding.
