Remember that story of the first PlayStation 3 murder?

In case you missed it, here's how it played out: A Connecticut cop knocked on the door of a man accused of ripping off a PlayStation 3. There was an argument, and shots were fired. The alleged thief and his dog ended up dead.

Yesterday it was reported that the cop, Christopher Long, was charged with second-degree murder for the lapse in judgement. Ooops... turns out he wasn't. Frome GameSpot:

"In a dramatic turn of events, murder charges against Long have been dismissed, after the grand jury foreman admitted to incorrectly checking the wrong box that would decide Long's fate.

Upon hearing the news, Strickland's parents released the following statement: 'Yesterday, our son's murderer was going to have to answer for what he did. Today, we just don't know what is going on in Wilmington. We are upset, confused and searching for answers.'"

The other two cops on the call were cleared of any wrongdoing. More details as they appear.
