 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - No charges were filed Tuesday against a 33-year-old St. Paul woman arrested in the beating death of former Villanova basketball star Howard Porter, and she was released from jail.
The woman had been in custody since Sunday night on suspicion of homicide. Prosecutors had until noon Tuesday to file charges or release the woman. St. Paul police said there was not enough evidence to charge her now in the case, but the investigation was continuing.
``That doesn't mean she's cleared or anything. It just means there's not enough right now to charge her,'' said Janet Hafner, a spokeswoman for the Ramsey County attorney's office.
Police spokesman Tom Walsh said the woman remains a suspect, though it was unclear whether she was the one who beat Porter. Walsh said the woman is about 5-foot-2 and 135 pounds, while Porter was 6-8 and about 260 pounds.
The 58-year-old Porter was a retired NBA player who was working as a probation officer for Ramsey County. He was found severely beaten in a north Minneapolis alley on May 19 and died a week later at a Twin Cities hospital. Authorities said he died of multiple blunt force injuries.
