(SOUTH BEND) - Northern Indiana prosecutors say they don't expect criminal charges in the deaths of 14 dogs after air conditioning failed in the truck they were housed in.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office announced Tuesday that evidence "confirms that the dogs' deaths appear to be a tragic accident and that no crime was committed."

It says if the results of necropsies performed on some of the dogs uncover additional evidence, prosecutors will review the case again.

The dogs were found dead Friday outside a hotel in Roseland, just north of South Bend. A handler was staying there while the dogs participated in a show. Police say a circuit breaker cut power to the air conditioning.

Police say the truck belonged to Lakesyde Kennels and Handling of Wellington, Ohio.
