ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office has dismissed more than a dozen charges against one of five men indicted in a series of homicides and shootings but plans to refile them later. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Marquise Henderson had been set for trial this week in the 3 1/2 year old case. Among the charges that were dismissed when a judge denied the state's request to postpone the trial were three counts of first-degree murder. Two of the killings happened on Jan. 10, 2016, and the third occurred eight days later.
