Wednesday, 10-28-09, 1:36 p.m. yogurt shop murders: charges dropped!

At today's (postponed for months) Yogurt Shop Murders pretrial hearing, defendants Michael Scott and Robert Springsteen walked into state District Judge Mike Lynch's courtroom with free will instead of being led in from holding cells by sheriff's deputies.

They walked out of the courtroom with free will and as truly free men for the first time in more than 10 years, after Judge Lynch signed an order granting the district attorney's office's motion to dismiss all murder charges for both Scott and Springsteen.

More details coming.

Just saw the tweet from KEYE and immediately headed to your blog. Quite a story, Iris.

Hi Annie,
Just finished posting my longer, more detailed account of today's BIG news. Big for the families and friends of the victims and the suspects. I guess it also just seems big to those of us who lived here in 1991, when the murders happened, and those of us who attended either of the first trials in 2001-2002. I attended Michael Scott's trial, but that was way before I blogged.
