KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Prosecutors says a Missouri man lied about killing seven people and scattering the bone fragments on his rural property.

A murder charge against Michael Lee Shaver Jr. was dismissed Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reported.

The newspaper said police would not speculate on Shaver's motivation for allegedly making false statements while he was being arrested for an attempted carjacking.

He was later charged with one count of first-degree murder and gave a statement that indicated he had killed as many as seven victims, the newspaper said. Prosecutor Teresa Hensley said the investigation cost "tens of thousands of dollars."
