DUBUQUE, Iowa Assistant Dubuque County Attorney Chris Corken tells KCRG.com that prosecutors have dropped charges of murder and child neglect against Nick Reed.

Reed was babysitting his girlfriend's 2-year-old son last November when the boy died. Officers claimed Reed beat him to death against the bathtub. At the time they claimed the boy had severe burns and head trauma.

In her application for dismissal ,Corken wrote "after engaging in process of discovery it has become clear to the state there was no longer sufficient evidence to find the defendant beyond a reasonable doubt."
