— On Friday, the Orange County District Attorney's Office dropped child sex charges against a man months after murder charges were also against him.

Carrboro police found child pornography on a computer belonging to Andrew Dalzell. They also say he stole a credit card number to buy a mail order bride.

A judge ruled the evidence cannot be used in court because officers obtained it illegally.

Earlier this year, the district attorney's office had to drop a murder charge against Dalzell for the same reason.
