LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania prosecutor is vowing to refile charges dismissed against a man accused in the bludgeoning death of his live-in girlfriend.

A Westmoreland County district justice said Wednesday that not enough evidence was presented to sustain charges against 57-year-old Gregory Randall of Laurel Mountain.

Prosecutors allege that he battered 52-year-old Angela Cavalero with a wine bottle and a hammer more than two dozen times in May, but District Justice Michael Mahady called the prosecutor’s case against Randall “speculative.”

District Attorney John Peck said he would refile charges Wednesday afternoon to prevent Randall’s release from prison.

Randall told reporters at a May arraignment that he didn’t remember killing Cavalero and doesn’t believe he would have.
