The officer who shot and killed a Dutchess County woman will not face any charges after an investigation by the state's attorney general.            
State police say one woman was shot and killed while officers responded to a domestic incident in Hyde Park last April.
           
Police say Jamie Feith pulled out a knife while officers tried to de-escalate the situation. They say they asked her to drop the knife, and when a taser did not work, police say they shot her.
Feith died at the scene.
The Attorney General’s Office of Special Investigation reviewed body camera footage and evidence.            
Investigators concluded that a prosecutor would not be able to disprove beyond a reasonable doubt at trial that the officer who shot Feith was justified.
