ROCKFORD (WREX) - The McLean County state's attorney drops murder charges against Rockford native Alan Beaman.

William Yoder says the investigation into the murder of Jennifer Lockmiller will continue. Lockmiller was killed in August 1993.

Beaman was found guilty of her murder, but the conviction was overturned last year by the Illinois Supreme Court.

He has been free on bond.
