By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Starkville Municipal Court Judge Rodney Faver has dismissed charges, stemming from a March 1 kidnapping, against three Mississippi State University students.

The Commercial Dispatch reports 22-year-old Corey Skelton of Kosciusko, 21-year-old Frederick Oglesby of Hattiesburg and 22-year-old Donovan Carroll of Canton were arrested and charged with kidnapping a female student in Starkville.

Xaryl Pritchard of the Starkville Police Department says the victim, who signed affidavits for the kidnapping charges against the three, decided to drop the charges for unknown reasons last week.

No other charges are pending against the three men.
