Some charges dropped in rape case

Charges have been dropped in a Harlan County rape case.

It happened last July in Gray's Knob.

The Commonwealth's Attorney tells us the DNA evidence did not support the charges against Marcos Lopez.

He will now be turned over to immigration and customs enforcement.

Gustavo Salinas, who is also charged in the case, missed a court appearance earlier this week and there is now a warrant out for his arrest.

A third suspect was indicted last week.

At first, Ismael Lopez was thought to be a minor but they have since found that he is over 18.
