A grand jury this week has declined all charges in connection to the death of a man in a parking lot in December 2019.

Menelaos Theofilos Skaris, 41, died in 2019 after several fights near the Kemah Boardwalk, officials said. An unnamed woman apparently was assaulted as well.

Investigators with the Kemah Police Department looked into the case and referred the matter to the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office, officials said.

A grand jury this week considered four criminal charges against one person involved in the fights, as well as misdemeanor assault charges against two other people, officials said. The grand jury declined all charges.
