Homicide charges against Togi’s Sub Shop owner Stephen Stidd were dismissed at a preliminary hearing Tuesday before District Judge Dominic Cercone.

Stidd was arrested on allegations he shot and killed his son-in-law, Melvin Bizzarro, in a parking lot behind Togi’s Family Restaurant, next door to the sub shop.

During court proceedings in the matter, no one questioned whether Stidd shot Bizzarro; the case seemed to rest on whether not the act was performed in self-defense.

More information will be available in Wednesday’s edition of The Era.
