Some charges thrown out against Chic-Colbert

Some charges have been dropped against Ethan Chic-Colbert, who faced murder and kidnapping charges, along with several counts of child neglect for the chain of events that led to the death of 11-year old Jahlil Clements. Chic-Colbert was allegedly battering Clements' mother on the side of I-77 March 4th when Clements ran into the road for help and was struck by a car. The judge yesterday threw out the murder and kidnapping charges because he said there was insufficient evidence from the state to support the charges. Chic-Colbert still faces several charges of child neglect resulting in death and child neglect creating substantial risk of injury.
