Prosecutors in the United States will not bring charges in what was previously a federal investigation into the death of Shanquella Robinson, a woman from Charlotte, North Carolina, while in Mexico last October.

Officials with U.S. Attorneys’ Offices in two districts in North Carolina announced the decision in a statement on Wednesday, issued shortly before the woman’s family members were scheduled to speak about the probe and Robinson’s killing at a televised news conference.

The killing of Shanquella Robinson was being investigated as a femicide, an unfamiliar term for many in the United States as this gender-motivated crime has not been defined by U.S. legislation despite being a global issue.
