V B4 THE COURIER-JOURNAL DEATHS SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 5, 1998 LOUISVILLE-AREA DEATHS Man gets death penalty in slaying of girl, 16 day and after 9 a.m. Tuesday. Memorial gifts: John A. Smith trust fund, co the funeral home. Elizabeth Tibba Barnes Standard, 93, of El Conquistador Apart By JAMES PRICHARD Associated Press PRINCETON, Ky. A judge imposed the death penalty yesterday on a man who had admitted abducting, raping and murdering a high school honor student and cheerleader. Robert Keith Woodall, 23, who was previously convicted of a sex offense involving a child, pleaded guilty in Caldwell Circuit Court on April 10 to one count each of capital murder, rape and kidnapping. A jury deliberated for an hour before sentencing him to death July 20. Sarah Hansen, a 16-year-old student at Muhlenberg South High School, disappeared after leaving a Greenville video store Jan. 25, 1997. Her body was found in a nearby lake a short time later. The girl apparently was attacked in the minivan she was driving. Her throat was slashed with a box cutter, then she was carried or dragged about 700 feet to the lake, leaving a bloody trail. An autopsy found water in her lungs, indicating she drowned. Woodall declined an opportunity to speak in the courtroom and had no reaction as Judge Bill Cunningham imposed the death sentence on the capital murder count. Woodall's IQ has been measured at 78. In Kentucky, no one with an IQ under 70 can be sentenced to death. Underground Railroad center designers picked Alfred W. Benzel Jr., 72, of South Louisville, died Thursday at Caritas Medical Center.

Blackburn Architects of Indianapolis, led by Walter Blackburn; BOORA Architects of Portland, Ore.; and Martha Schwartz of Cambridge, Mass., were chosen to design the 125,000-square-foot museum and park space, which is to open in 2003. "This is the most prestigious architectural commission that a black American architect might hope to win," Blackburn said. "When they called to tell me, it not only made my day, it made my career."

Waugh fled Sadieville, population 300, in December 1990, before the Kentucky State Police could question her about money missing from the city bank account. She was found last spring by FBI agents in Glen Rose, living under the name Linda Sue Redfield. Bob Redfield, whom Waugh married in Texas, was in court for the sentencing. He said he took out a second mortgage on his house to help pay the restitution of $55,853. "What happened before has no bearing on how I feel about her," Redfield said of the woman he still calls Linda. "I know the kind of person she is from the time I've lived with her. "She's a beautiful person, inside and out. She made a mistake, and she paid for it." Norris Stacy, who was mayor of Sadieville at the time of Waugh's crimes, disagreed.

'! i . , ; 'S ' ' 1- - ; Vs 1 V The judge also imposed two prison sentences of life with no possibility of parole for 20 years on both the rape and kidnapping counts. Cunningham told Woodall during the hearing that he had considered not Woodall imposing the death penalty because of the defendant's guilty pleas. But the judge said the brutal nature of the crime and Woodall's lack of remorse led him, for the first time in his seven years on the bench, to impose death. Before the sentences were imposed, Commonwealth's Attorney Ralph Vick told the court that death was the appropriate penalty. Jill Giordano, one of two lawyers who represented Woodall, had asked the judge to reduce the jury's death-penalty sentence to life in prison with no possibility of parole. The trial was moved to Caldwell County because of pretrial publicity. Woodall was sentenced in 1992 to five years in prison for sexual contact with a girl under age 12. He was released 32 years later. D.C. Its displays will aim for emotional effect and to convey the tragedy and heroism of black Americans as they sought freedom. The center also will have facilities for performing arts and exhibition galleries to offer a broad view of contemporary black culture. Blackburn and his wife, Alpha, who will work with him to design the interior of the center, presented his portfolio in a four-hour interview in Cincinnati earlier this summer. "We showed them our vision for the center, with its emphasis on the Ohio River as the most important border blacks had to cross on their way to freedom," Blackburn said. Center planners consider the inside of the museum far more important than the building itself, said Ed Ri-gaud, the center's president. Organizers hope to raise $80 million to $90 million, with half from public sources. The building probably will cost around $50 million, and the rest of the money will be used for an endowment and for exhibit design, research, management fees and other expenses, Rigaud said.

By TIM WTIITM1RE Associated Press GEORGETOWN, Ky. - Margie Waugh, the former Sadieville city clerk who embezzled more than 855,000 and disappeared for Tk years, got the mercy she requested from a judge yesterday. A six-month jail sentence imposed by Scott Circuit Judge Robert Over-street should have Waugh back in Glen Rose, Texas the small town where she gave herself a new name and built a new life in time for the holidays. Waugh had pleaded guilty last month to 66 felony counts of theft and agreed to a prison sentence of 10 years unless the judge decided on a probation term instead. Yesterday, Waugh asked Over-street for "as much mercy as possible," and he placed her on probation for five years. That means that Waugh, who returned to Kentucky and began serving time in the Scott County jail in May, should be out by early November. Under state law, the maximum sentence that can be served on probation is six months. "The fact that restitution has been on the wrist," he said when informed of the sentence. In arguing for probation, defense lawyer R. Burl McCoy told Over-street: "Certainly Ms. Waugh recognizes the wrong she did and makes no excuses for that. . . . She's truly contrite." The lawyer cited dozens of letters written by Linda Sue Redfield's friends attesting that "since living in Texas (she) appears to have been an exceptional citizen," involved in charity work for the local Humane Society and organizing social events for older residents. A 1992 indictment charged Waugh with writing dozens of checks to herself out of Sadieville's account, starting shortly after she took the $300-a-month clerk's job at the beginning of 1990. Lawyers have said Waugh gave the money to friends and relatives in need. State police were tipped to Waugh's crimes in December 1990 by a relative, but she fled after being questioned over the telephone by Stacy, whose signature Waugh had been forging on the checks. The FBI won't say how it tracked Wauiih to Glen Rose.
