CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An inmate at the Laramie County jail who was charged last month with the attempted murder of a fellow inmate has had the charge dismissed.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/2uUXmQU ) Circuit Judge Denise Nau ruled Wednesday there was not probable cause to support the charge against Victor Jackson, so she dismissed it.
Nau previously dismissed a count of aiding and abetting attempted murder against Jackson's brother, Duane Jackson.
Victor Jackson is awaiting trial on four counts of sexual assault-threat or, in the alternative, four counts of sexual assault-submission/resist, and a count each of strangulation of a household member and domestic battery-first offense.
Duane is awaiting sentencing for a count of sexual abuse of a minor. He faces a mini-mum of 25 years and up to 50 years in prison.
