JUNE 7, 2005 - Posted at 7:46 a.m. CDT

 

VAN BUREN, MO - Authorities have dropped an assault charge against the wife of the man accused of killing a Missouri State Highway Patrol sergeant in March.

Coree Shockley of Van Buren had been accused of going to the home of the man prosecuting her for alleged involvement in the homicide.  She still faces a charge of attempting to conceal evidence in the death of Patrol Sergeant Dewayne Graham, Jr.

The assault charge was dismissed by special prosecutor Steven Lynxwiler, the prosecuting attorney for Ripley County.  Lynxwiler did not return calls seeking a reason for the dismissal.

Shockley had been accused of going to the home of Carter County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Ligons in Ellsinore in an attempt to threaten him.
