LE MARS, Iowa (AP) — A judge has dismissed a murder charge filed against an Akron woman at the request of prosecutors who want more time to investigate the case.

The Sioux City Journal reports District Judge John Ackerman on Monday granted the request to dismiss a second-degree murder charge against Becky Hebert. She was arrested after the Oct. 6 shooting death of her husband, 40-year-old Jeremy Hebert.

Plymouth County Attorney Darin Raymond sought more time to investigate medical and lab reports and cellphone records.

The attorney for the 34-year-old Hebert didn’t resist the motion.
