Darleene Barrientos The two men accused in the slaying of Raul Aguirre could be back on trial in January if a judge approves a request made Monday by prosecutors. The previous trial of Karen Terteryan and Rafael Gevorgyan ended Friday in a mistrial, with the jury deadlocked on murder and other charges. A trial date was not set Monday, but a hearing to consider whether to drop the murder charge against Terteryan, 21, and Gevorgyan, 18, was scheduled for Dec. 15. The court also will consider whether to allow the men to be tried separately.

Gretchen Hoffman A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Wednesday ordered a young man and two teenagers to stand trial in the May 5, 2000, stabbing murder of Hoover High School senior Raul Aguirre outside Toll Middle School. Karen Terteryan, 20, Rafael Gevorgyan, 17, and Anait Msryan, 16, are accused of killing Aguirre in a murder that forced many in the community to open their eyes to ethnic tensions in Glendale. The attack allegedly began when one of Aguirre's friends, an admitted gang member, and Gevorgyan and Terteryan flashed gang signs at each other, police said.

In regard to possible closure of the YWCA's pool, we would like to express our concerns. It has come to our attention that costs in maintaining the pool have escalated from $1,500 to $4,500 per month, according to the Glendale News-Press. Resoundingly, we agree that the sharp rise in overhead is cause for alarm and very plausible due to our ongoing energy crisis. However, we feel that arbitrarily closing a facility that promotes good health and positive recreation is not the answer.

Alecia Foster DOWNTOWN -- Attorneys for three teens accused of killing Hoover High School student Raul Aguirre said Tuesday they plan to file formal challenges to a new law allowing the youths to be tried as adults. Proposition 21, approved by voters March 7, allows prosecutors to try juveniles as young as 14 as adults without first going through lengthy court proceeding. "We believe it to be unconstitutional," said Mark Geragos, attorney for 17-year-old Karen Terteryan, one of the three teens charged in the case.
