A judge dismissed on Monday the murder case against one of two men charged in the fatal shooting of the half-sister of Venus and Serena Williams. A jury deadlocked 9-3 this month in favor of acquitting Aaron Michael Hammer of murder. Hammer was accused of shooting at Yetunde Price with a .22-caliber handgun, but prosecutors said the shot that killed her wasn't from that weapon.
