    Next week, the San Diego County board of supervisors will consider a proposal to name two sections of North County highways after two slain teenagers.

    Chelsea King was raped and murdered and raped by John Gardner while she was on a jog in Rancho Bernardo Community Park in February 2010.

    Amber Dubois was kidnapped, raped and murdered in February 2009 as she was walking to Escondido High School. Gardner led police to her body in March 2010 after his arrest in Chelsea's death.

    Now, Supervisor Bill Horn is asking that a bridge that crosses Lake Hodges on I-15 be named after Chelsea King and a piece of State Route 78 near the Wild Animal Park be named after Amber Dubois, in honor of her love of animals.

    Gardner is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty in April.
