Cambridge man is free after charges...

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - A Cambridge man is after  charges of first degree murder have been dropped.

Terrance Conway avoids a trial and some extremely serious charges.  The 24 year old was a suspect in the 2016 shooting death of Taron Anderson and was arrested back in January.

The Dorchester County State's Attorney tell 47 ABC the case was dismissed because there was insufficient evidence to go to trial.

"It is disheartening that it had to get to that point. Mr. Conway was incarcerated for almost 8 months on these charges, that he's finally certainly very grateful that we finally have reached a resolution," says Michelle Barnes, the defendants attorney.

There was another suspect in this case, his name is Jaelin Green- Purnell. The Dorchester County State's Attorney says Purnell had plead guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 5 years with 5 years suspended.

Prosecutors have not arrested any other suspects, but still consider this an open case.
