SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. — Sampson County investigators said a man who claimed he was innocent was not lying.
Deputies dropped charges against Derrick Owens after an investigation pointed to another man that turned out to be Owens' half-brother Barry Artis.
Artis faces numerous charges related to an attack on an elderly couple in Clinton last month.
