ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Nearly a year after an Albany man was beaten to death, the investigation continues after charges against one suspect were dropped.

18-year old Antonio Seay and 20-year old Kentrell Barney were arrested in May for the January murder of 52-year old John Barbre.

Barbre was found near death in front of the Tallulah Massey Library.

He died two days later.

Barney is still in jail, but charges against Seay were dropped shortly after his arrest.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said  "The evidence that was presented at a preliminary hearing was reviewed by a Magistrate Court, who chose not to bind the defendant over for trial at this point. That does not preclude us from investigating the case further."

Seay was cited this week for simple battery. Police say he pushed his sister at their home.

Barbre had given Albany Police information in the high-profile Jack Camp murder case. Investigators said Barbre's murder was part of a robbery and was not related to the Camp killing.
