Four murder suspects in a vicious stabbing attack that killed one man and left another critically injured on a residential street in Fullerton were released Tuesday after a prosecutor decided that there was insufficient evidence to file criminal charges against them. "There is the possibility that with additional evidence . . . this case may be filed," said Deputy Dist. Atty. Douglas Woodsmall. "It just wasn't ready at this time. As a prosecutor I try to make a determination as to whether or not, based on the evidence at hand, there is a reasonable probability of a conviction," he said.

By most standards, Tony Hernandez has had a successful career in sportscasting. After a few brief stints in such places as Cedar Rapids, Iowa, he went on to work in four major markets--San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York and Los Angeles. He has been a sports anchorman and reporter in L.A. for 10 years, having spent 5 1/2 years at Channel 7 and the last 4 1/2 at Channel 2. But what Hernandez always dreamed of was announcing major league baseball.
