A New Zealand prosecutor on Friday dropped a charge against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd that he attempted to procure the murder of two people, but Rudd still faces charges of threatening to kill.One day after Rudd was arrested and charged with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of narcotics, a New Zealand government prosecutor said the most serious charge had been dropped because of a lack of evidence.Mabey said Rudd had suffered "incalculable" damage from unnecessary and damaging publicity arising from the arrest, and reporting of a serious allegation which was never justified".He said the 60-year-old Rudd, who is on bail to reappear at the end of the month, would defend the threatening to kill charge, which has a maximum sentence of seven years in jail.
