Three teens charged with killing five men in an Ensley home will continue to face capital murder charges.
Last week, attorneys for Rashad Stoves, Artavius Underwood and Reginald Mims asked a judge to dismiss the charges in light of a recent Supreme Court ruling.
That ruling says no one under the age of 18 can face charges with a mandatory sentence of life without parole. Alabama's current statute says they can.
In his ruling today, Judge Wallace said while the ruling eliminates a mandatory sentence, it does not prohibit the possibility for that sentence.
Judge Wallace also denied all three defendants' request for bail.
