CORVALLIS — A murder case against an Oregon judge’s daughter has fallen apart, partly because prosecutors were unable to use the woman’s developmentally disabled young adult son as a key witness.

Prosecutors filed a motion Nov. 29 to dismiss the charges against Lorrain Sarich, according to the Corvallis Gazette-Times. Sarich was released from the Linn County jail the next day, after serving more than two years in custody.
