Metro police say the man who stabbed their daughters Tiffany Campbell and Melissa Chilton to death at the Exotic Tan for Men in 1996 is going to face justice.
Authorities charged Patrick Streater with the two counts of first degree murder.
He's the former boyfriend of Campbell.
"There's an end in sight for us and there's hope bless everybody involved in this," said Campbell's mother Deborah Edmonds.
"It's been so many years I thought the case had just stopped but now i know they kept working. They kept trying and they solved it," said Gail Chilton.
Streater has long been someone police were talking to in this case and they say a combination of interviews and scientific evidence finally lead to 1st degree murder charges.
"The motto of Cold Case units across the country is never give up and that's what we do in these types of cases," said Det. Sgt. Pat Postiglione.
Streater has been in a California prison for robbery charges since 2002.
He has two years left on his sentence.
It remains to be seen when he'll be returned to Nashville to face charges.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
