Murder charges dismissed in Rampart-related case [LOS ANGELES, CA]

PoliceOne Staff Report
(LOS ANGELES Commissioner Michael G. Price yesterday dismissed homicide charges against Jose Luis Oliverria for the slaying of 19-year-old Wilber Escobar, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A key witness in the case has also given conflicting stories making him unusable in a trial, the Times quotes a deputy district attorney as saying.

The prosecutor will go forward with a robbery case against Oliverria in which he is charged with stealing $1 and a six-pack of beer, the newspaper reported.
