A jury found Darrell Williams guilty of two counts of rape by instrumentation and one count of sexual battery in July 2011, but the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals threw out the verdict earlier this year. The appeals court said testimony of jurors at a special hearing last year suggested that at least two jurors made unauthorized visits to the crime scene.
Payne County District Attorney Tom Lee said Monday that the two women want to move on with their lives and don't want to testify again.
Williams' trial attorney called the decision good news and said she wasn't surprised.
