Capital murder charges dropped for Spring Street defendant

Posted:
MCLENNAN COUNTY -

The McLennan County District Attorney's Office confirmed Monday, the dismissal of capital murder charges against Kennedy Hardaway in the Lakewood Villas Apartment shooting.

Hardaway, also known as Kevin Hardway, was suspected in taking part of the shooting that left two men, Keenan Hubert and Tyrus Sneed, dead and two others injured.

The charges were dropped after testimony in the Rickey Cummings trial, along with information from Hardaway's lawyer, led to further investigation. The D.A.'s investigators found that Hardaway had an alibi at the time of the shooting.

The D.A. released a statement that said "This dismissal is not intended to be, nor should it be read as, an exoneration of Mr. Hardaway. It is, instead, an acknowledgement that insufficient evidence exists at this time to prosecute."

Hardaway's attorney, Sandy Gately, said she appreciated the fact that they did a reinvestigation and dismissed the charges. She said that it did justice for her client.

The D.A.'s Office wouldn't comment further because of the pending trials against co- defendants Albert Love and D'Arvis Cummings. Trials for the two are expected to take place within the next year.

District Attorney Abel Reyna also dismissed charges against Tyrece Richards in November 2011. Rickey Cummings was sentenced to death in November for the March 2011 attack.
