TULSA, Oklahoma - A murder charge was dismissed against an 18-year-old Sand Springs man. Brandon Gray was charged with murder and first-degree burglary after police said he and another man, James Edward Patterson, broke into a home in October.

The homeowner shot and killed Patterson who was found outside the home's back door. The homeowner detained Gray until Sand Springs police took him into custody.

Gray was charged in November, but those charges have been dismissed. The homeowner was not charged in Patterson's death.
