Albany -- Murder charges against two Albany brothers have been dropped. Frank Robinson and his brother Jimmy Robinson were arrested in June. Both were charged with the April 27th murder of Robin Cherry.

The 39-year-old woman was beaten to death and sexually assaulted in a vacant lot on Mercer Avenue. A witness told police the Robinson brothers were following Cherry the night she was killed.

District Attorney Ken Hodges says the charges were dropped because of insufficient evidence.  Hodges said "We have not ruled out the two individuals as suspects. The investigation is still ongoing. If we establish sufficient corroborating evidence, then we could reinstate the charges."

The Robinson brothers were investigated but never charged with the May 23rd murder of Felicia Ross, whose body was found a block from where Cherry was murdered.
