Charges dropped against Wilson
Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015 — All charges have been dismissed against Delwood Wilson, a suspect in the February 2014 murder of Cedric Erwin Trejo and the attempted murder of Nathan Duane Wilson, his stepbrother. Wilson’s attorney, Stephen King, said the Lassen County District Attorney’s Office asked the court to dismiss the charges against Wilson at his arraignment Friday, Jan. 30.
Susanville Police Chief Tom Downing said the decision to prosecute the case rests with the district attorney.
“If the district attorney decided not to file those charges, that would be her decision,” Downing said. “It’s the district attorney’s call. She had the case beforehand, and we had a warrant from a judge, so we had probable cause” to make the arrest.Add a comment
