THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A man investigators believe murdered a Thomas County woman 20 years ago was released from custody Monday, because a judge says there's not enough evidence against him.  

A preliminary hearing was held Monday on a warrant charging 58-year-old Jerry Hobbs with the murder of Glenda Quisenberry in Thomas County in May 1989.

Magistrate Judge Andrew Seery dismissed the warrant, saying there was insufficient probable cause to detain Hobbs. Hobbs was arrested in April in San Antonio, Texas and brought to Thomasville.

Investigators believe Quisenberry was taken from an area battered women's shelter and killed. Hobbs was her boyfriend at the time. Her body was never recovered.

Thomas County investigators continue to work on the case and plan to use cadaver dogs to check out a place they think Quisenberry may have been buried.
