HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Washington County District judge has dismissed a first-degree murder charge against a man accused of beating a homeless man to death.

But visiting Judge R. Noel Spence did find probable cause to support a charge of second-degree murder against 38-year-old David Allen Miller on Wednesday.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that Miller is accused in the death June 15 of 47-year-old Robert Harvey Dunavant.

Hagerstown police say the two men went to a homeless camp near the CSX railroad tracks in some woods to drink. Officers say the men got into a fight, and Dunavant died at the scene.
