Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son Daniel died from an accidental drug overdose, according to the findings of a Bahamas jury – which recommends no criminal charges be filed.

The seven panelists deliberated less than two hours before returning the verdict on Monday, the Associated Press reports.

Daniel died Sept. 10, 2006, shortly after he arrived in the Bahamas to meet his new baby half-sister, Dannielynn, who was born in a Nassau hospital.

An autopsy whose results were announced in December determined that Daniel died as a result of a lethal combination of methadone and the antidepressants Zoloft and Lexapro.
