ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Prosecutors dropped the murder charge against 17-year-old who was implicated in the death of a man at a South Valley party.
Prosecutors said they made the decision to drop the charges against Timothy Malek because they are waiting on ballistics and DNA results.
According to court documents, Malek was at a house party with Angel Grado when the two opened fire.
Initially, both Grado and Malek were charged with murder.
Prosecutors still plan to argue that Malek should be held in custody before trial.
