Charges Dropped In Murder Case

KSAL StaffAugust 23, 2014

Prosecutors have dropped a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of a man whose body was found in a ditch north of Wichita.

23-year-old Antonio T. Bell remains jailed in Sedgwick County on an unrelated drug case. It isn’t immediately clear who is representing him. He was charged with killing Deandre Freeman Jr., whose body was discovered near Kechi last September.

Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Dan Dillon said in a written statement that the murder case was “dismissed without prejudice” but he would not give further details. A case that is dismissed without prejudice can be filed again at a later date.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office has said that Freeman and Bell were documented gang members and knew one another.
