Business records probed in shooting Associated Press -' TUCSON An investigation into the shooting death of Tucson businessman Charles Curtis Morgan has widened to include his business and financial affairs, Pima County sheriff's detectives reported Monday. ..Detectives said they have subpoenaed records of Morgan's transactions with Tucson banks in hopes of finding some clue to his death June 18. In addition, records of his business, Statewide Escrow Service Inc., have been studied, they said. Morgan, 39, was found dead of a bullet wound in the head June 18 in the desert near Sells. Detectives said they think it was suicide, but evidence is inconclusive and they said homicide is a possibility. Eleven days before he was found dead, Morgan went into hiding, apparently thinking he was the target of a hired killer, detectives said. Attorney General Bruce Babbitt said Morgan gave secret testimony to state officials last month in a bank- "ing investigation. He was offered protection but refused it, Babbitt said. The investigation involved Banco International de ;T Arizona, which had lent Morgan $30,000 earlier this 'year so he could acquire controlling interest in State-; wide Escrow. I The Tucson Citizen reported Monday that slate ap- proval of Morgan's move to take over Statewide was held up for three months until he agreed to give the secret testimony. One week alter he gave it, his take-; over was approved. Bond election planned I for Aug. 9 in Yavapai arc charged in $282 holdup The Arizona Republic Tue., Jun. 28, 1977 B-3 Sent lo Flagstaff court at station Northern Arizona Bureau FLAGSTAFF - Three Colorado residents have been charged in the Sunday night robbery of a Flagstaff gas station in which $282 was taken, city police said Monday. Charged with armed robbery were Patricia Ann Earnheart, 21, Denver; Donald Gene Vur-ciaga, 28, Brighton; and Theresa Marie Nordham, 20, Brighton. The three were arrested by Winslow police at a roadblock shortly after the robbery occurred at the Husky Station in Flagstaff. Station attendant Clyde Hutchinson, 19, told police a man and a woman came into the station about 8:30 p.m. The man held the attendant at knife point, while the woman put money from the cash box into a paper bag. Police Detective P a t Tarr said the second woman apparently had been waiting outside in a car. - Preaching suit denied by judge Northern Arizona Bureaa FLAGSTAFF A petition filed by two men who challenged a law that was used to prevent them from preaching near a school has been denied by Superior Court Judge Richard K. Mangum. Mangum ruled that the case should be returned to City Court for trial and said that City Judge Helen A. Gonzales "is properly suited" to try the case. The petition, filed by Steven R. Schoner and Steven G. Twitchell, who are associated with Victory Chapel, named Judge Gonzales and City Attorney Fred Croxen in their petition. They were arrested a month ago while preaching across the street from Flagstaff High School during a lunch hour and were charged under a state statute that says anyone who willfully disturbs a public school or school meeting is guilty of a misdemeanor. Their petition sought to dismiss the case. It con-tened the statute was unconstitutional. : .- PRESCOTT - Yavapai "County supervisors on ', Monday s e t an Aug. 9 " election date for a supple- mental bond proposal for Yavapai Community ; Hospital.
