Charles Andrew Williams, 15, accused of a shooting rampage at Santana High School in Santee that left two dead and 13 wounded, should be tried as an adult, a judge ruled Friday. Superior Court Judge Herbert Exarhos rejected claims by Williams' attorneys that Proposition 21, the ballot measure allowing prosecutors to send juveniles accused of serious crimes directly to Superior Court, is unconstitutional.

A judge Friday delayed ruling on whether Charles Andrew Williams, 15, accused of killing two students and wounding 13 people at Santana High School in Santee, should be tried as an adult or juvenile.
