7. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, FREE PRESS 7B. LOCAL NEWS fire kills 2 who were unable to escape BY ROGER CHESLEY Free Press Staff Writer A disabled man and a man who was legally blind were killed in a house fire early Wednesday, unable to escape rising smoke and flames from a kitchen fire that boiled out of control and blocked their rescue. Sixteen-year-old Tiwan Copeland said his grandmother, Shirley Kelley, awakened him from a first-floor couch after the blaze broke out about 2 a.m. Copeland said he tried to douse the flames with a garden hose.

Smoke prevented him from going upstairs to carry Robert Wilson out of the home at 3961 Miller on the city's east side. "The smoke was too thick," he said. Kelley, Copeland and his cousin, Nicole Kelley, 13, escaped unharmed but could not save Wilson, 58, or William Brooks, 53, both of whom died of burns in the fire. Officials blamed "careless cooking." Police quoted a witness as saying Brooks was cooking in the kitchen. Carl Copeland, 33, said his mother, Shirley Kelley, and Brooks were companions for 19 years and they lived at the Miller house six years.

He said Brooks was legally blind but loved to ride his 10-speed bicycle. Tiwan Copeland, 16, surveys rubble piled on the back steps of his Detroit home after fire gutted it Wednesday. Smoke halted his rescuing a man who could not flee. RICHARD Detroit Free Press The bike "was his Harley-Davidson," said Darryl Brumfield, 28, a family friend who stood outside the early damaged Wednesday. house with Carl Copeland OW Site of fire Carl Copeland said Wilson had been disabled since age 19.

DOMINIC Free Press Former teacher's drug sentence reduced BY SANDY MCCLURE Free Press Staff Writer Michigan's tough drug laws, under scrutiny from the state's high court to the U.S. Supreme Court, took a hit Wednesday when: a man convicted of drug possession got up to 16 years removed from his 20-year minimum prison sentence. David Schultz, 28, of Farmington Hills made history when the state Supreme Court ruled in August that he could be resentenced to less than the mandatory minimum term he received in May 1987. A more lenient law, passed after Schultz was arrested, allows a judge to impose less than mandatory sentences in all but life-sentence cases when there are "substantial and compelling" reasons.

William Wolfram of Franklin, Schultz's attorney, said Schultz should be eligible for parole almost immediately. "I think that there's a good chance he might be home by Christmas," he said. Wolfram said fewer than 30 other state prisoners could be resentenced ence his imprisonment has been for his under the Schultz ruling. Some already family. have contacted him for legal help, he Schultz, whose family and friends said.
