The charge was dropped Wednesday and the Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office referred the case back to the sheriff's department for further investigation. 

Astorga was accused of shooting and killing Mulvaney after he allegedly stole a shovel from Astorga's workplace.

Astorga said he shot Mulvaney because he believed Mulvaney was going to run him over.
