An 82 year old man charged with murdering his stepson won't go to trial. He died on Monday.
Henry County officials say George Collins Carter of Axton died of natural causes at Martinsville Memorial Hospital. Carter was arrested last month after his stepson, William Jacob Wilson, died of a gunshot to the stomach. Authorities said at the time that Wilson was trying to stop an argument between Carter and his mother.

In the warehouse where Scott Peterson kept his boat, Modesto Police detectives testified they found a single cement anchor...but cement residue suggesting Peterson had created as many as four more anchors.
SUPER: MICHAEL CARDOZA, DEFENSE ADVOCATE Where did all those other anchors go? What were they used for? The logical explanation appears to be that they were tied to the arms and legs of laci, and that's what the district attorney wants to the jury to glean from that.
The DA's theory is that Peterson dumped the body of his wife Laci into San Francisco Bay where it washed up four months later. A month after Laci's disappearance, Gloria Gomez of KOVR-TV asked Peterson what the cement was for.
SUPER: KOVR-TV - JANUARY 29, 2003 SCOTT PETERSON: sure well. I can take you out in the backyard and show you all the cement work and brick work that we have done to this home.
But he didn't explain why there was cement at his warehouse.
SUPER: ROBERT TALBOT, LAW PROFESSOR It leads you that there was a way to dispose of the body that was within Scott Peterson's control. It doesn't necessarily mean that he used that way or that's what he did, but it's there.
Jurors were also shown two pieces of hair believed to be Laci's found in pliers in Scott's boat.
