ALBANY, GA (WALB) - New details on the death of a war hero.
The Dougherty District Attorney says he does not plan to file charges in this month's death of Bronze Star Medal of Valor recipient Wesley Braswell.
The 37-year old died during a fight with C-Jay Johnson July 13th on Duitman Road.
Prosecutors say a gun found at the scene was Braswell's.
Investigators believe Braswell threatened Johnson, who put him in a chokehold.
Braswell died of asphyxiation.
Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards said "All of the circumstances present that the situation was a stand your ground and self defense circumstances, that unfortunately resulted in a death."
Braswell was awarded one of the Army's highest honors for bravery for saving soldiers lives in 2006 in Iraq during an I-E-D attack and ambush.
