TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A woman whose husband was convicted of killing a Kansas woman is no longer facing charges of helping him avoid arrest.

Charges were dismissed Wednesday against Rebecca Hollister, wife of Roger Hollister, who was convicted of killing 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of Rural Horton in 2009.

Rebecca Hollister, of Topeka, was charged in March with aiding a felon. Prosecutors had alleged she tried to help her husband avoid arrest and conviction after Kimmi's death.

Roger Hollister died in March while serving a life sentence in the El Dorado Correctional Facility.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bz3agY ) Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert said in his motion to dismiss that an essential state witness had died, making it difficult to prosecute Rebecca Hollister.
