Death of Fort Worth man, Tasered by police, ruled a homicide

The dead man was named Michael Jacobs Jr., and he suffered from schizophrenia. He was apparently off his meds and having an episode when Fort Worth police Tasered him back in April. The first burst lasted 49 seconds, followed a moment later by a 5-second burst. Though the medical examiner has ruled it a homicide, it's not clear what kind of charges, if any, will be brought. The case is going to a grand jury.
