ODESSA, Texas, March 1 (RIA Novosti) – Criminal charges could be filed in connection with the death in Texas of adopted 3-year-old Russian boy Max Shatto, also known by his Russian name Maxim Kuzmin, even though pathologists ruled the death accidental, local officials said here Friday.

“There are things that can happen that are accidental that could still result in criminal liability,” Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland told a news conference.

Bland was pressed to explain in more specific terms but refused to elaborate.
