6 teens, ages 14 to 19, charged as adults and jailed in beating death of Calif. 14-year-old

Six California teenagers are being held on $3.5 million bail each after being charged in the death of a 14-year-old boy who was beaten and stomped at a Stockton city park.

Police say the victim, Rin Ros, of Stockton, went into cardiac arrest and died at a local hospital Friday a few hours after he was pulled from a car and jumped by a gang of other boys at Panella Park.

The suspects range in age from 14 to 19, yet all were charged with murder as adults during their arraignments on Monday.

A San Joaquin County deputy district attorney says she could not a remember a homicide case involving defendants so numerous and so young.

A youth leader at Rin's apartment complex says the boy's head and chest were swollen when she tried to revive him.
