BRUNSWICK, Ga. — The District Attorney prosecuting the two people arrested in connection to the murder of a young man in Glynn County says no charges will come from his office.
On Wednesday, District Attorney Keith Higgins of the Brunswick Judicial Circuit released a statement regarding the formal withdrawal of prosecution, of Akeem and Tiffany Brown, in the murder of CJ Proctor.
The Glynn County Police Department responded to the notice of withdrawal in a press release Thursday.
"The Glynn County Police Department understands the decision made by the District Attorney’s Office as our relationship is dependent upon communication and mutual respect," said the Glynn County Police Department.
"While we understand the public’s frustration, the Glynn County Police Department and District Attorney’s Office have to follow legal guidelines set forth by the judicial system. The decision not to pursue charges at this time is not a reflection of the work of the Glynn County Police Department, but rather legal issues with marital relationships in criminal prosecutions...."
Corey “C.J.” Proctor’ was found shot back in April of 2018 on the north end of Golden Isles Parkway, according to Florida Times-Union.
Akeem Juwon Brown, 31, and his 32-year-old wife, Tiffany Renee Brown were arrested in connection to the crime.
