WILLISTON -- One of several people arrested in the slaying of a Williston-area hobby rancher has been released from jail and all charges against him dropped.

According to jail staff and court documents, Jeremy Weyrauch was released from the Williams County Jail Friday and all charges against him were dismissed.

He was arrested earlier this year on a count of conspiracy to commit murder in the May shooting death of 58-year-old Jack Sjol. Sjol's body was found in a garbage dump on May 14, three weeks after his family reported him missing. Authorities say he had bullet wounds to his head, face and upper left arm.
