QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts judge has completed a closed-door inquest into the 1986 shooting death of the brother of a former university professor accused in Alabama of killing three colleagues.
Norfolk District Attorney William Keating ordered the inquest into whether Amy Bishop intentionally shot her teenage brother at their suburban Boston home.
The shooting originally was ruled accidental.
Supreme Judicial Court spokeswoman Joan Kenney says an inquest report was finalized Tuesday and delivered to Norfolk Superior Court. All documents are impounded until the district attorney decides not to prosecute or fails to win an indictment, a trial is completed or a judge determines trial is unlikely.
Bishop says the February shooting deaths at the University of Alabama-Huntsville "didn't happen." Her family insists her brother's death was an accident.
