(Wyo)-Charges Dismissed, Refiled In Reservoir Body Case

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming judge Tuesday dismissed the charges against a 21-year-old Cheyenne man accused of shooting a 19-year-old man in the head and dumping his body in a reservoir, but prosecutors quickly filed new charges and Armando Ramirez-Serna remains in jail.

      The body of Justin Robinson was found Nov 26 in a reservoir east of Cheyenne by sheriff's deputies investigating a nearby burned out SUV. Ramirez-Serna is accused of shooting him the night before.
     Laramie County Circuit Judge Denise Nau ruled the initial charges - 1st-degree murder, aggravated robbery, 1st-degree arson and attempting to conceal a felony - didn't reflect what had happened and dismissed them.   
     Laramie County District Attorney Jeremiah Sandburg says he disagreed with the judge's ruling and responded by filing new, but similar, charges of 1st-degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and 3rd-degree arson.
