Misconduct allegation dismissed in US Attorney killing case

SEATTLE (AP) — A special prosecutor dismissed a misconduct allegation against an attorney in connection with a purported witness to the killing of a former prosecutor. The Seattle Times reported that Shawna Reid, the first individual to have been indicted in connection to the killing of U.S. Attorney Thomas Wales, told FBI agents that a “Suspect #1” had boasted that he had been a part of a “murder of a “judge or attorney that lives on top of a hill.’” But Reid denied making those statements to the FBI when speaking before a grand jury in Feb. 2018. She was later indicted on perjury and obstruction charges.
