Judge drops charge against 2nd man in Aniah Blanchard case
An Alabama judge has dismissed a kidnapping charge against one of the three men arrested in the disappearance of a UFC heavyweight fighter’s stepdaughter who was later found slain.
A Lee County judge dismissed the charge Tuesday against 35-year-old Antwain Shamar Fisher in the case of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard. A motion presented by the assistant district attorney said an investigation revealed Fisher was not present during Blanchard's abduction.
Twenty-nine-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed is charged with capital murder-kidnapping. David Lee Johnson Jr. is charged with hindering prosecution. Blanchard was last seen Oct. 23 in Auburn, Alabama. Her remains were found weeks later.
