MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - Felony charges related to what authorities said was the theft of morphine from a Macomb County medical facility have been dropped against a 53-year-old woman who worked there as a nurse.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports (https://bit.ly/1QdB133 ) that a judge determined Wednesday that evidence by prosecutors was too weak to send Karen Spearman to trial.

Spearman was charged last month with larceny, adulterating drugs or medicine and driving on a suspended license after the sheriff’s office said water was added to vials of morphine at the Martha T. Berry Medical Care Facility in Mount Clemens, northeast of Detroit.

Prosecutors told the judge Wednesday that contents of the vials had not yet been tested.

Spearman still faces the driving on the misdemeanor suspended license charge.
