A judge Friday refused to rule that prosecutors can never refile murder charges against a woman whose conviction for allegedly poisoning her Marine husband was dismissed when new forensic evidence failed to find poison in his body.

But prosecutors declined to recommend that the dismissal be made "with prejudice," meaning the charges could never be refiled.

A judge Thursday ordered five men from La Jolla to stand trial in the beating death of a fellow surfer but rejected prosecutors' assertion that the five were part of a gang. If the five are convicted, the gang-designation could lead to longer prison sentences. But Superior Court Judge John Einhorn, at the conclusion of a preliminary hearing, said he disagreed with the contention that the five, who called themselves the Bird Rock Bandits, were part of a gang whose main purpose was criminality.

"You are beyond the pale of salvation," Superior Court Judge John Einhorn told Wilson, 21, as he accepted the jury's verdict and rejected an opportunity to instead sentence Wilson to life in prison without parole.
