Cpl. Keil Cronauer, one of two Marines accused of gay bashing Savannah’s Kieran Daly, who was left unconscious in the street after he supposedly “winked” at them, no longer faces even a misdemeanor charge of battery, with Judge Clair Cornwell-Williams declaring there’s no evidence Cronauer struck Daly.
