Murder charge dropped against former police officer Richard Aguirre

The Spokane County Prosecuting Attorney has dropped a first-degree murder charge against Richard Aguirre, a former officer with the Pasco Police Department. 

In 2015, he was charged in the 1986 killing of Ruby Doss in Spokane based on DNA linked to the crime scene. 

On Wednesday, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Driscoll Jr. said the case was dropped because of a lack of evidence, according to court documents. 

Aguirre was also found not guilty of a rape charge in Franklin County earlier this year, which sparked a major feud among his family members.
