Robert Shell was facing the charges in connection with the death of Marion Franklin of North Carolina. Franklin was found dead in Shell's studio June third of an apparent drug overdose. But, today, prosecutors filed a motion to drop the charges, while they wait for Franklin's autopsy results. Prosecutors say it is at that time when they will also decide whether to charge Shell with homicide. Shell is currently out on bond and under house arrest. His attorney is now fighting to get that order dropped as well.

In their second meeting, members of the panel indicated that some taxes may be on the way out.
They proposed repealing the estate tax, finishing the phase out of the car tax and reducing the tax on food.
But they also made it clear that some Virginians will see higher tax bills.
Among those voicing their concern today were federal retirees and dry cleaning businesses.
That's because the panel is thinking about doing away with the age deduction on personal income taxes and applying the state sales tax to services as well as goods.

[SUPER=03-Atlanta, GA/TurnerSouth; :00]

Robert Fick continued his redhot play at the plate for the Braves as he drove in three runs on the day. The first baseman was two for four. He got some long ball help as Marcus Giles and Gary Sheffield each hit homers. Sheffield's shot to left barely cleared the fence, but check out the reaction from the young fan who makes the catch and takes home a souvenir he'll always cherish. Braves' starter Mike Hampton got the win, his 11th of the season, and as you can see he also got some nice defensive help. Braves beat the D-backs 6-to-1.

In New York, the Mets also played long ball and got some great pitching. Mike Piazza just plain crushes one in the bottom of the first innings to give the Mets a 2-to-nothing. That's all they would need, but Jason Phillips gave the team a little insurance as he rocks a shot to left, as well. The Mets would win this one 8-to-nothing. Steve Trachsel pitched a complete game gem that was almost a no-hitter and almost a perfect game. One walk and this single in the 6th were the only blemishes as the Mets roll 8-to-zip.
