HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Prosecutors decided not to pursue a charge linking two siblings to the case of a murdered Waynesboro police captain.
Daniel Mathis and Mersadies Shelton were accused of taking off in Captain Kevin Quick's stolen car.
Prosecutors can still bring the charge back. According to legal analysts, the charge could come in the form of a direct indictment by a grand jury. In the meantime, the brother and sister face a number of other violent charges stemming from an attempted armed robbery.
A third sibling, Shantai Shelton, was also in court for an unrelated case involving the alleged poisoning and theft from a victim. Previously, prosecutors had said she was going to be taken out of state in Captain Quick's stolen car, but she has never been formally charged in connection to this case.
Prosecutors also decided not to pursue three misdemeanor charges against Mathis in connection to the attempted armed robbery.
