CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP/WJW) — Prosecutors in Ohio asked a judge to issue arrest warrants for three witnesses sought in the retrial of Tevin Biles-Thomas.

Thomas is the brother of Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles.

Tevin Biles-Thomas faces charges in a deadly 2018 New Year’s Eve party shootout that left three men dead.

Biles-Thomas is charged in Cuyahoga County with murder, voluntary manslaughter and felonious assault; prosecutors on Tuesday dismissed a perjury count.

The U.S. Army soldier’s first trial ended in a mistrial last month after jurors were inadvertently given legal paperwork related to the case. His attorney says he didn’t fire any shots at the party.

Prosecutors have been unable to find the only witness who reported seeing Biles-Thomas fire a weapon.
