MAN WHO FALSELY CONFESSED TO GIRL’S MURDER IS RELEASED
Charles Hickman, a 21 year old man charged with murdering 10 year old Katlyn Katie Collman, an Indiana girl, after falsely confessing to the crime, was released from jail, one day after another man, Anthony Stockelman, was charged in the slaying. Hickman was released from the jail where he had been held on unrelated charges of molesting another minor two years ago. The murder charges were dropped against Hickman. Stockelman, who previously had been charged with molesting Katie, now faces murder and confinement charges. DNA tests of semen found on her body matched a sample provided by him.
