BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. - Several charges filed against a man accused of booby-trapping his apartment to harm his girlfriend were dropped Tuesday.
Kenneth Robinson, of Butler County, is still facing reckless endangerment and weapons charges, but a judge dropped the more serious charges of aggravated assault and simple assault.
Channel 11’s Alan Jennings was there when Robinson came out of court. He said, “It’s a better day than I’ve had in a long time.”
Police said Robinson built a trap in his home that included nails in a piece of wood that would swing down when the door opened.
Officials discovered the wood before it was ever used.
The criminal complaint stated Robinson's girlfriend filed a protection from abuse order against him before that, which upset him.
