A San Francisco judge refused to dismiss murder conspiracy charges Thursday against three alleged former militants accused of orchestrating a war against San Francisco police officers nearly 40 years ago.
State prosecutors were forced to drop murder conspiracy charges earlier this year against five of the eight original defendants in the case.
The eight were all accused of conspiring to kill officers from 1968 to 1973 as members of the militant Black Liberation Army.
Their cases were dropped after defense attorneys discovered that the statute of limitations at the time for murder conspiracy was three years.
