It would take 3-4 minutes of cutting the blood off to the brain for it to kill somebody. Most people go unconscious mere seconds after a choke is tight.
As long as the HYPOTHETICAL death happened in the cage during the fight, and with no ill will from the opponent, there would be nothing to charge anybody with.

This is a case of an idiotic teen making a tragic mistake while being hyped up after watching wrestlemainia.
Reading the police report, it does not sound like the used a rear naked choke, but a poorly preformed rear choke (fake wrestling move), he most likely crushed the victims wind pipe, not something a rear naked choke would do, as it is not a wind choke, its a blood choke.
