Heilly's retrial for the murder of his mother will apparently not be held until fall. Officials said Thursday that the Litchfield County Superior Court docket is backed up, .with at least two other murder [rials expected to be held before Reilly's. The other two suspects are still in prison, so their trials will be held first. Reilly is free on $25,000 bond pending retrial on a charge of murder in the Sept. 28, 1973 slaying of his mother, Barbara Gibbons, He was convicted in April, 1974, but Superior Court Judge John A. Speziale ruled in March Reilly's conviction was a "grave injustice" and said he should be tried again. Jury trials are not normally held in the courthouse during the summer because it is not air-conditioned. The crowded docket may require summer trials, court officials said.

(UP1) - An official from a bus company said Mystic Oral School students may have thought the air pressure gauge was the speedometer when they stated their drim was going 100 miles an hour. The parents of 11 students signed a complaint sent last week to slate Education Commissioner Mark Shedd about the alleged incident. Also, 23 students on the bus signed a statement detailing the alleged incident. "There's one big dial on Ihe instrument panel thai registers between 90 and 120. It's the air pressure gauge to the braking system," said Terence McElroy, general manager of the Eastern Bus Co. of Bolton. McElroy said Sunday 40 students from the state school for the deaf may have been mistaken when they concluded the bus was traveling at about 100 miles an hour "on a trip May 14 from Mystic to Branford.

(UPI) - Conneclicul has replaced mattresses used in prisons as a result of Norwich Bulletin disclosures about polential high flammability of the mallresses. The newspaper, in a copyrighted slory Monday", said Ihe problem became known after two deaths and nearly a dozen injuries. In the lasl 18 months, the Bulletin said, two Connecticut correclional cenler inmates died "as a resull of injuries s'ijtained in 'mallress fires. Nearly a dozen more inmates or guards have been injured or suffered smoke inhalation in Ihe tast two years in the state." A Connecticut Department of Corrections survey found 26 other slates using polyurethane foam mattresses had "serious problems," including four slates which recorded 16 deaths related to mattress fires, the newspaper said. Seven states no longer use the mattresses and an eighth is considering banning them. The newspaper said it brought the problem to the attention of stale officials, including Gov. Ella T. Grasso, and an "emergency level" program was begun lo replace the foam mattresses. Initially, 2,000 safer mal- tresses were bought at a cost of 550,000 for use in areas with "high-risk" populations sue* as prisoners and mental patients, according to Ihe Bulletin. The newspaper saiii Connecticut will replace nearly 20,000 foam mattresses used in state institutions because they burn rapidly and generate a great volume of smoke when exposed to open flame, especially when positioned vertically. The mattresses were sold as flame retarded and exceeded existing federal safety standards, according to a series of articles by Thomas C. Oat and Denis Morin. They said a special chemical treatment used to decrease their flammability does not last long. "Federal safety standards," the newspaper said, "require no open flame testing nor time lest to determine the flammability of mallresses which are labeled fire rctardant." The Bulletin said it held off publishing the story until Ihe maltresses in high-risk areas were replaced for fear inmates would deliberately start fires. "In terms of. the responsible way in which il was handled, I think it's a story in itself," Corrections Commissioner John R. Manson told the Bulletin. "You just couldn't have been more responsible. I don'I know of any other media group which would have held as long as you, if at all," the commissioner was quoted. The paper said "polyurethane mattresses in use in prisons, jails, mental hospitals, juvenile centers and nursing homes across Ihe country at Ihe present time are not safe because they don't have to be." Paul Kisby, the Brooklyn (ire marshal, told the newspaper the raallresses can be "totally consumed by flame in Ihree minutes." The Bulletin said it was alerted lo the problem following Ihe death of a 17-year-old inmate al Ihe Brooklyn Correc- lional Cenler nearly a year ago. ,, He as an woman - and she's Bionic.
