SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two lawmakers want to name San Diego County highways after Chelsea King and Amber Dubois - the local teens who were murdered by a convicted sex offender.

Supervisor Bill Horn wants his colleagues to push for state legislation to name a bridge on Interstate 15 after Chelsea and a section of State Route 78 after Amber. Amber loved animals and the road is near the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

A Horn spokesman tells the San Diego Union-Tribune that state Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher plans to introduce the bill this year and asked Horn to seek local support.

Seventeen-year-old Chelsea was killed in February and 14-year-old Amber was killed last year. Sex offender John Gardner III is serving a life sentence for their murders.
