WTH For The Day; DE Attorney General Says They Won't Appeal Charge Dismissal
Last week charges were dropped against the only suspect in a murder at Delaware State University. Thursday the State Attorney General's office says they won't fight the decision.
The charges were dismissed against Loyer Braden because prosecutors withheld key evidence. That evidence included a statement from an eyewitness saying Braden was not responsible for the shooting that killed Shalita Middleton in 2007 and injured one other person. The State didn't disclose the videotaped interview until early April, more than a year and a half after it happened. Officials say they did not intentionally withhold any evidence.
