FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A judge has dismissed charges for a Fort Wayne man who was arrested in connection to a fatal shooting that occurred in January 2020.

Sedrick Williams, 28, of Fort Wayne was charged with murder and a related firearm charge for the Jan. 7 shooting death of Marlon Lee Kimbrough, 40, of Indianapolis.

Just after 9 a.m. that day, railroad workers called police after finding a man down near the railroad tracks in the area of Meyer Road and Oxford Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office said later that Kimbrough died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide, the county’s first of the year.

Fort Wayne Police said that Williams was identified as a suspect in the killing early on. He was arrested, though, on an unrelated parole violation by U.S. Marshals last year.

Allen County Judge David Zent dismissed both the murder and firearm charges on Wednesday.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
