Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghaida Wednesday dropped the case against Lebanese Army officers and servicemen accused of being involved in the killing a prominent Sheikh and his companion in 2012 . Sheikh Ahmad Abdul-Wahed and Sheikh Mohammad Hussein al-Merheb were killed in 2012 at an Army checkpoint near the northern town of Kwaikhat. Abu Ghaida said the length of time that has passed since the crime was committed also contributed to the decision.The incident occurred when a nine-car convoy in which the two sheikhs were traveling arrived at a Lebanese Army checkpoint on the main road of the town of Kwaikhat. The family of Abdul-Wahed issued a statement later Wednesday denouncing Abu Ghaida's decision.
