The Circuit Attorney’s Office has dismissed an assault charge against an Illinois man whose new wife was found dead in June at the bottom of a parking garage near Busch Stadium after a Cardinals-Cubs game.
Chief Trial Assistant Rachel Smith on Monday filed a memo dropping a felony domestic assault charge against Bradley S. Jenkins, 31, of Taylorville, Ill., in the June death of Allissa L. Martin, 27. Jenkins and Martin were Illinois prison guards.
Susan Ryan, a spokeswoman for the Circuit Attorney’s Office, provided a statement saying the court requires an indictment within 90 days of charges being filed.
“Unfortunately,” Ryan said, “we are still awaiting evidence from police and the medical examiner that are required for the grand jury to decide this case.”
“Once we receive the necessary evidence, we intend to refill (sic) the charges,” according to the statement, which also included a plea from the public for more information abut the case.
