Terrell Boyd, 26, was charged in November with first-degree murder for the shooting death of the 56-year-old Glover, according to Cook County court records.

The charge was dropped at a hearing last Wednesday before Judge Donald Panarese, according to court records.

Glover was outside his home in the 100 block of North Leamington Avenue at 1:36 p.m. on June 26, 2014, when two people got out of a van in the alley behind the home, walked up and shot him in the back and left leg, authorities said at the time.
