More charges dropped in Twin Peaks Deadly Shootings


The special prosecutors assigned to four cases connected to the deadly Twin Peaks shootout have asked judges to dismiss the cases against Billy McCree, Chance Aikin, and Ray Nelson.  

All three men faced charges of engaging in organized crime.  Police arrested them after the shooting that killed 9 people and injured several more on May 17th, 2015.  

A judge named Brian M. Roberts, Brian Benken, and Feroz Merchant as special prosecutors in those cases after McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna asked to be recused. 

Last May, the special prosecutors filed to have charges dropped against another biker arrested in 2015, Matthew Clendennen.  

FOX44 News spoke to Brian M. Roberts Tuesday morning.  He says they found no evidence for the charges brought against McCree, Aikens, and Nelson. He says Judge Strother had signed off on dropping the cases agains McCree and Nelson.

Judge Doug Shaver has yet to dismiss the case against Chance Aikin.
