EDISTO ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Two men jailed for more than a year in a deadly nightclub shooting on Edisto Island have been cleared of murder charges.

The two men, 22-year-old Craig Brown and 30-year-old Arthur Moultrie were accused of killing Kavares Brown at The Pit Club on Edisto Island on June 18, 2010. Prosecutors have dropped all charges.

Authorities say that witnesses and other evidence raised strong doubts in the case. Investigators say their case was put on hold because witnesses wouldn't talk.
