FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Two men accused of fatally shooting a 5-year-old Fort Myers boy will be released after a key witness said she doesn’t remember what happened.

Multiple news sources say on Tuesday Lee County Judge Joseph Fuller granted motions to allow Terrance Irons and Thomas Edison to be released from jail while the case is pending. Officials say the two have been in jail since October 2014 after the death of Andrew Faust Jr. outside the boy’s home.

Fort Myers police say 18-year-old Cashae Smith gave an interview and said she saw what happened and knew who was responsible. Officials say after her initial interview, Smith failed to show up for scheduled hearings. On May 18, she said she couldn’t remember and didn’t recall making statements in her interview with police.
