TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Most of the charges have been dropped against the main suspect in the death of a 9-year-old Tampa girl.

Prosecutors say they’re only pursuing one of the four sex charges filed against 35-year-old Granville Richie. Richie has been jailed since May 21 when he was arrested on drug and having sex with a minor charges that are unrelated to the death of Felecia Williams.

The girl was reported missing on the night of May 16 and her body was found floating in Tampa Bay the next day. Richie hasn’t been charged with the murder.

The Tampa Tribune (https://bit.ly/1wEXEG5 ) reports Temple Terrace police say there is no update in the murder investigation.

A search warrant affidavit says Richie was with the girl at her apartment around the time she went missing.
