MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 34-year-old man accused in last week's killing of a Cold Spring police officer has been released without being charged.
Authorities at the Stearns County jail confirm that Ryan Michael Larson was released shortly before noon Tuesday.
Larson was arrested in connection with last Thursday's slaying of Cold Spring Officer Tom Decker.
The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Stearns County Sheriff's Office say prosecutors have determined they don't have enough documented evidence to charge Larson at this time.
The investigation is ongoing.
Decker, a father of four, had been with the Cold Spring department for six years. His funeral will be held Wednesday in nearby Collegeville.
