COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WTVR) - The family of a man beaten outside his Colonial Heights apartment in February said they are frustrated that charges keep being dropped against the people accused of killing him.

After the death of Rusty Mack four people were arrested for his murder.

On Monday charges against his estranged wife Ashley Mack will be set aside. Additionally, Jonathan Guy, Mack’s cousin who was dating Ashley at the time, was acquitted last month of second-degree murder.

Mack's parents said some fault still lies with the accused.

“We were upset with the jury came back. Like I’ve been saying from the very beginning, there’s no common sense,” Mike Mack told CBS 6 News. “You figure the jury, they were all that age at one time. You don’t bring your new lover to your husband’s house -- and expect everything to go smooth."

The trial for the fourth person accused in the case, 18-year-old Blair Dacey, is scheduled for February.
