Georgia has dismissed its case against Clara and LaShea Marsh, mother and sister of Brent Marsh, their attorney said late Monday.

The two women were charged with improperly signing death certificates.

The charges were part of the investigation into Brent Marsh, former operator of the Tri-State Crematory in Rock Spring, in which he did not cremate 334 bodies over a six-year period between 1996 and 2002. He is serving a 12-year sentence.

Their attorney, McCracken Poston of Ringgold, in a written statement issued early Monday evening had words for the media, he said, "This is the way the law is supposed to work — and not with an angry mob! Please consider your own coverage of when these women were arrested and give the dismissal of their cases equal dignity.
