Charges Dropped for Man Suspected of Murder; Girl Still Missing

MARLBORO COUNTY, SC - (WLTX) -- All charges are dropped for a man who was previously suspected of killing a woman in her home in Bennettsville, according to the Marlboro County Sheriff's Department.

Earlier this week, 36-year-old Dwayne Jermaine Bright was charged with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
