Ray Lewis Case Joshua Levs of member station WABE reports prosecutors in Atlanta today dropped murder charges against Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in exchange for his testimony against his two-co-defendants. Lewis also agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing justice. Lewis had been charged with murder for his alleged involvement in the stabbing deaths of two men outside an Atlanta night club after a Super Bowl party in January. Prosecutors began the trial with little direct evidence connecting Lewis to the stabbings and testimony by prosecution witnesses was not seen by court observers as bolstering their case.
