DETROIT (AP) — Prosecutors in Detroit have dropped charges against a man accused of moving the bodies of four women found in cars.
But James Brown is not off the hook. Prosecutors next door in Macomb County are taking over because police believe the women were killed in their jurisdiction before the bodies were moved.
Sterling Heights police Lt. Luke Riley said Wednesday that Brown likely will face the same charges by Friday. He remains in custody and doesn't have a new lawyer yet.
The bodies of Demesha Hunt and Renisha Landers were found Dec. 19 in a car trunk in Detroit. Six days later, the bodies of Natasha Curtis and Vernithea McCrary were found in a burning car. Three of them had placed ads for escorts online.
