The death of 10-year-old Joanna Ramos is being reviewed by the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

An office spokesperson said Friday that Long Beach authorities turned over investigation notes earlier this month, however prosecutors have not determined whether charges will be filed against a young girl.

Ramos died in February of head trauma injuries following a fight after school.

The name of the other girl involved has not been made public and no autopsy results have been released per a security hold on the case, said Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.
