  • Justin Edwards will not have to face charges of first degree murder in the death of 18-month-old Jayla Haag at this time.
    Judge David Ricke dismissed the charges against Edwards Thursday afternoon, saying the state did not provide sufficient evidence of the cause of death.
    The charges can be refiled if the state comes up with sufficient evidence.
    Alyssa Haag, Jayla's mother, remains out on bond as she awaits her trial, set for Oct. 29, on first degree murder charges of Jayla.
