Lawsuit against ex-Beaman prosecutors dismissed


A federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit against two of Alan Beaman's former prosecutors after all parties requested the motion.

The joint motion was granted by U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade Friday. Beaman filed the lawsuit against James Souk and Charles Reynard and police because he claimed they ignored and hid evidence that could have cleared him of murder charges.

Beaman was convicted of the strangulation death of his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lockmiller, but was freed in 2008 after DNA evidence pointed to two other suspects. He was granted a certificate of innocence earlier this year.

Beaman's lawsuit against police is still standing.
