NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee has dropped its charges against a man accused of stabbing two women to death at a Nashville tanning salon in 1996.

The Tennessean reports Nashville prosecutors announced Friday that charges were dropped against 42-year-old Patrick Lamonte Streater. He was indicted in 2013 on two murder charges in the deaths of 18-year-olds Tiffany Campbell and Melissa Chilton. The state decided then not to immediately take him to trial. Streater served two years in prison awaiting trial before the state agreed to let him post bail in November.

Deputy District Attorney Roger Moore said Friday that it wouldn’t be appropriate to proceed with the case against Streater “in light of the current state of the evidence.” Metro Nashville Police spokeswoman Kris Mumford says the case remains open and under investigation.
