Judge: Retry or release Frank Gable in Oregon prison director’s murder

A federal judge ruled Thursday that the man convicted of murdering the Oregon Department of Corrections director in 1989 should either be released from prison or retried within 90 days.

Prosecutors erred in excluding evidence pointing to another possible suspect in the murder of Michael Francke, 42, outside the corrections’ Dome Building in Salem, said U.S. Magistrate Judge John Acosta in his opinion and order.
