Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. The defense's initial witnesses included several people who remembered seeing a Ryder truck at the Dreamland Motel in Junction City, Kan., a day before one was rented by McVeigh an implication that more than one such truck was used in the April 19, 1995, blast and that the motel was a meeting place for McVeigh and other conspirators. The motel owner, Lea McGown, testified that while McVeigh was a guest there, he often was darting in and out of her establishment in the days before the bombing. But she said she never saw Nichols in his company. Rather, she said, she once overheard a group of men talking in McVeigh's room, and none of them was Nichols. Another defense witness was David Ferris, a taxi driver in Junction City who recalled driving McVeigh alone to a McDonalds restaurant, from where McVeigh then walked to the Ryder rental agency. Ferris testified that he did not see anyone meet McVeigh at the restaurant Defense lawyers next showed the jury photos from a surveillance camera at the McDonalds, again with McVeigh alone at the restaurant McVeigh was found guilty earlier this year and sentenced to death in the bombing that killed 168 people and injured more than 500. The defense strategy appears clear Convince the jury of seven men and five women that at best Nichols was unknowingly used by McVeigh to further his bomb plans. Better yet the defense lawyers hope to show that someone other than their client was the key co-conspirator. When the government rested its case, defense lawyers asked Judge Richard P. Matsch to grant an acquittal. Matsch denied their request.

No decision is expected immediately. A jury convicted the 19-year-old on Oct. 30 of second-degree murder in the shaking death of Matthew Eappen, her host family's 8-month-old son. Two weeks later, Superior Court Judge Hiller Zobel reduced the verdict to manslaughter and Woodward was freed after 279 days in prison. Prosecutors claim Zobel ex- ' the Associated Press ' ij BOSTON Prosecutors face an uphill battle in their attempt to have a justice of Massachusetts' ,highest court hear an emergency appeal of the sentence given to British au pair Louise Woodward. 1 1 The appeal, to be considered today, was filed under a state law that allows the prosecution to skip the appeals court step. But the state's Supreme Judicial Court often rejects the shortcut. I Justice Ruth Abrams could refuse to hear the case, sending prosecutors back to appeals ceeded his authority by composing his own theory to explain the baby's death. They say he also failed to follow state guidelines that recommend a three- to five-year prison term for involuntary manslaughter. But the main issue today will be whether this qualifies for an emergency appeal. "You have to get over the hurdle of showing there is no other remedy available in the law," said R Michael Cassidy, associate dean of Boston College Law School. "That's a very high hurdle to meet." 1 1 Look no further than these new-home communities in this Fridays Real Estate Weekend section.
