The inability to locate a key witness led to a drastic move in the Ralph O’Neal murder case on Monday.
“We would ask that you allow us to enter a dismissal,” Assistant District Attorney General Alyson Kennedy told Criminal Court Judge E. Eugene Eblen.
Eblen, who appeared surprised, granted the request.
“We have no objection,” O’Neal attorney Bob Vogel said.
And with that, the case was over.
