Murder indictment against Pr. William shooter dropped

Virginia prosecutors have dropped a murder indictment against a bus driver charged in the slaying of a fellow driver.

Forty-year-old Glenn Wade of Woodbridge was charged in the June 15 slaying of 32-year-old Darnell McPherson of Dale City. Both worked for the Potomac Rappahannock Transportation Commission.

Prince William County Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert says authorities didn't have sufficient evidence to prosecute and some witnesses were uncooperative.

Wade is now out of jail after the charge was nolle prossed on Dec. 23. That means if new evidence comes up, the charge can be brought again.

Another man, 35-year-old William Anderson Jr. of Woodbridge, also died in the bus terminal shooting. Police say it appears McPherson and Anderson shot and killed each other.

"Uncooperative" witnesses. Either intimitated or they just don't care. Should one of them get shot, let's hope for some more "uncooperative" witnesses.

Witnesses? Firsthand, on the scene witnesses?
