Charges against one of the people arrested last year over the murder of Tanya Andy have been withdrawn.

Patrick Menson's charges of manslaughter and breach of probation were withdrawn during a court appearance in Thunder Bay on Tuesday, court documents show.

Menson was one of two people charged over the death of Andy, whose body was found in March 2019 on a bike path in the County Fair area of Thunder Bay, Ont.

During a court appearance in October, Ashley Potson pleaded guilty to a change of manslaughter in Andy's death.

Potson is scheduled to be sentenced on March 26, 2021.
