PERU, Ind. (WRTV) — A Miami County, Indiana judge has officially dismissed five charges against Kegan Kline, a man supposedly linked to social media profiles connected to the investigation of the murders of Abby Williams and Liberty German in Delphi.

Prosecutors filed a motion on Wednesday asking that five counts of child pornography possession against Kline be dismissed on the basis that “there is insufficient evidence to prove said counts beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.”

Kline is charged with a total of 30 counts, including child exploitation, possession of child pornography, obstruction of justice and others, all stemming from an investigation into the social media profile “anthony_shots”, which is part of the larger Delphi murder investigation.

Kline was arrested in August 2020.

Last week, Indiana State Police named 50-year-old Richard Allen as the primary suspect in the girls’ murders. His arrest came more than five years after the investigation began.
