• Prosecutors drop murder charge in care home death

    Updated:

    CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - A former Clayton County personal care home owner said the justice system worked, despite facing a murder charge for more than a year.

    Esther Edukuye said prosecutors justified her faith in her adopted country when they dropped charges in connection with the death of Robert Rosenthal.

    He was a resident of the home she operated.

    "I want to thank my family.  I want to thank my lawyers, and finally, I say glory to the Lord almighty for his grace, for his mercy and for his love," said Edukuye.

    Defense attorneys turned over records they'd dug up which the medical examiner had not seen.

    The medical examiner then changed her opinion from homicide by neglect to natural causes

    Edukuye's defense attorneys said the new evidence suggested prescription drugs helped explain extensive bruising and other visible injuries Rosenthal suffered.
