Prosecutors drop charges filed against man in murder case

IMPERIAL, Neb. (AP) – Prosecutors have dropped charges against a man accused of involvement in the disappearance and slaying of a woman in southwest Nebraska.

The North Platte Telegraph reports Russell Mann, of Enders, had been charged with two accessory counts. The charges can be refiled later.

The charges stemmed from the disappearance and killing of 22-year-old Annika Swanson and the kidnapping and assault of another woman who’s now safe.

Two other people have pleaded not guilty to murder and kidnapping charges. They are Kevin German, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Keonna Carter, of Taylorsville, Utah.
