SAN DIEGO (AP) - A woman once convicted of killing her Marine
husband with arsenic to pay for breast implants says she doesn't
know how prosecutors can sleep at night.

Cynthia Sommer had sharp words Friday for San Diego County
District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis after a judge dismissed charges
that she murdered 23-year-old Sgt. Todd Sommer in 2002. Thursday's
ruling came after new tests showed no traces of poison. Earlier tests showed levels of arsenic 1,020 times above normal.

Sommer told reporters that she barely slept on her first night of freedom after more than two years in jail. She says she isn't sure what she'll do next but may return to Michigan.
