WASHINGTON — Murder and attempted murder charges against former University of North Carolina football star Derrick Fenner will be dismissed by Prince Georges County, Md. authorities today, according to a published report.
The Washington Post reported in Monday's editions prosecutors decided last week to drop the charges against Fenner following a hearing before Prince George's County Circuit Court Judge Jacob Levin.
Alexis Revis, a spokeswoman for the state's attorney, confirmed that pretrial motions in Fenner's case would be heard today at 9 a.m.
Fred R. Joseph, one of Fenner's attorneys, told the newspaper he could neither confirm nor deny whether the charges would be dismissed against his client.
