A Moon man arrested for fatally beating a McKees Rocks clothing designer and community activist is being released from jail and charges will be filed against another man arrested on Thursday for the murder, according to authorities.

Londele Cox, 21, of the West End, has been charged with homicide, robbery and tampering with evidence in connection with the death of Isaiah Dent, 61, whose badly beaten body was found inside his home in the Hays Manor housing project on Jan. 28. Cox faces a preliminary hearing on April 10, according to court records.

Homicide and other charges have been withdrawn against Sean Overton, 19, who will be released from jail, according to the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office.

“The charges are being withdrawn because we don't believe Mr. Overton was involved,” said Mike Manko, a spokesman for the district attorney.
