Charges against two people accused of trying to extort money from John Travolta after the death of his teenage son in the Bahamas were dropped by a judge today.
Prosecutor Neil Braithwaite submitted a motion to dismiss the case at the request of the Hollywood star and his family.
It comes as a retrial in Nassau was about to start for two defendants accused of attempting to extort $25m (€19.4m) from Travolta.
A mistrial was declared in October after a politician suggested the still-deliberating jury had acquitted one of the suspects.
Jett Travolta, 16, died of a seizure in January 2009 while the family were on holiday in the Bahamas. Travolta confirmed after the death that Jett was autistic.
Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, who have a daughter Ella aged 10, announced earlier this year that they were expecting a new baby.
The 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Grease' star and his actress wife spent a year out of the public spotlight grieving for Jett.
