Charges Dropped Against Dad in Fatal Parking Garage Fight

    Prosecutors have dropped charges against a Bronx man indicted last year in connection with a fight at a parking garage that left his teenage son dead.

    The Bronx District Attorney said Friday that the indictment against Andre Muller was dismissed because prosecutors failed to tell the grand jury that he claimed self-defense in the case, but that prosecutors will present the case again.

    Muller had been indicted on two counts of felony second-degree assault and one misdemeanor county of fourth-degree criminal possession.

    Muller was with his 19-year-old son Isayah Muller at a Bronx parking garage just after the teenager's high school graduation ceremony June 28, and got into an argument with the parking garage attendants over some items missing from his car, officials said.

    Andre Muller allegedly assaulted Ramon Hernandez with a shovel, wounding him, said Johnson. When Isayah Muller tried to intervene, he was stabbed to death.

    Isayah Muller was a star running back at Truman High School, and had been set to start at Nassau Community College last fall.
