CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — First-degree murder charges have been dropped for a man accused in a St. Louis County homicide, with police citing new evidence in the case.
Zcore Hester-Henderson of East St. Louis, Illinois, was charged last week in the Aug. 12 shooting death of 37-year-old Derrick Bunting.
Bunting was killed in a parking lot near his apartment complex in the town of Black Jack.
Police say Hester-Henderson is no longer considered a suspect and has been released from custody, but did not elaborate on what new evidence has emerged.
