    A judge decided Friday to drop charges against the aunt of a teen accused of fatally shooting another girl last month.

    Vandetta Redwood faced charges of mob action and obstruction of justice related to the shooting death of 14-year-old Endia Martin.

    Prosecutors alleged that Redwood was at the scene of the crime and knew her niece was headed to a confrontation with a gun and didn’t try to stop her.

    According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the judge dropped the charges because cell phone video that placed Redwood at the scene was "choppy" and "poor."
