A grand jury has declined to indict a Providence, Rhode Island, man who had been charged with fatally stabbing his sister's ex-boyfriend. 

The attorney general's office announced Tuesday that the grand jury declined to indict 28-year-old Judex Maldonado in the Nov. 10 stabbing death of Charles Martinez. 

Police say the 32-year-old Martinez showed up at his ex-girlfriend's home, and she called Maldonado. 

Police say a fight ensued and Martinez was stabbed multiple times. Maldonado stayed at the scene and surrendered to police. 

Maldonado had been held without bail on a murder charge since his arraignment in November. 

The attorney's general's office did not say why the grand jury declined to indict.
