Ehrlich tearfully testified Wednesday that she wanted to get out of jail and support her 4-year-old son, who now lives with Ehrlich's mother. The boy's father, Miguel Garcia, is also facing the electric chair for his role in the Nov. 21, 1996, shooting deaths of two people, including a child, during a bungled attempt to execute another man, according to police. A detective testified that Ehrlich turned off her car's headlights and drove the gunmen to the wrong West Palm Beach house. Brandon Babb, 2, and Todd Chilton, 21, were killed. Babb's mother, Crystal Babb, was also injured in the shooting. MIAMI CITY BALLET Beach Ownty Honda 1 . J.

The money, which was deposited in a trust fund created by the Miami law firm of Stearns, Weaver, Miller, Weissler, Alhadeff & Sitterson, will be added to the $25,000 already being offered by Boca Raton police, officials said. A law firm representative would say only that a client asked the firm to set up the trust. John and Heather Grossman were shot Oct. 14 at a traffic light at the Yamato Road and Federal Highway intersection. Anyone with information is asked to call Boca Raton police at (561) 338-1399. BELLE GLADE Police charged Monique Jackson, 21, with attempted murder Tuesday night, for the second time in seven months. Jackson, who is on probation for an April stabbing, is being held without bail in the county jail. On Sunday night, Jackson became angry after finding her boyfriend talking to Katrisa Fordham, 18, Detective Angelo Tsaousis said. They argued in front of Billy's Market on Southwest Avenue E, and Jackson grabbed Fordham's hair and stabbed at her head with scissors, Tsaousis said. Fordham had flesh wounds but refused medical attention, he said. In the earlier case, Jackson admitted stabbing Dianne Baker during a family fight. Jackson pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of battery and was sentenced to a year's probation.

Morales, 19, who has B-positive blood, is seeking "an angel out there" whose marrow matches hers. She is of Mexican descent, and a match likely would be found in a Hispanic donor, doctors said. Blood and bone marrow test drives were held this week and will continue Friday and next week. For information, call the Palm Beach Blood Bank at (561) 845-2323.

By Val Ellicott Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WEST PALM BEACH Warren Clark, who is serving an 11-year prison sentence for a drunken joy ride that killed his best friend, must be tried again because prosecutors got medical records without a court order, an appellate court ruled Wednesday. ' The records, obtained from St. Mary's Medical Center, showed Clark's blood-alcohol level was 0.28 percent on March 8, 1994, more than three times the legal limit for drunken driving in Florida, court documents say. Because prosecutors initially obtained the records without a court order, Circuit Judge Mary Lupo declared the first state subpoena invalid. But she also ruled the records relevant and told prosecutors they could issue a second subpoena for them. The 4th District Court of Appeal reversed Lupo's ruling Wednesday, saying prosecutors cannot issue a second subpoena for medical records after they obtained the records improperly. "Otherwise, why have rules at all?" Clark's attorney, Richard Springer, said. "The state's position was, 'No harm, no foul.' My position is, once you break the rules to get those records, you can't ever get them." Springer said the appellate court's decision "cuts the heart out" of a DUI manslaughter case in which Clark disputes he was even driving the car involved in the fatal crash. But prosecutor Ellen Roberts said she will almost certainly move to convict Clark again. "I just have to' show he was 655-2411 under the influence of alcohol to the extent that his normal faculties were impaired." Roberts told jurors at Clark's trial last year that Clark, 28, a West Palm Beach mechanic, and his roommate, Eugene Conner, 25, were both drunk when they got into a vintage Mustang that Clark was restoring. Their ride ended when the car hit a concrete pole at Southern Boulevard near Parker Avenue, police said. State law allows police officers to take whatever action necessary including force to draw blood from motorists involved in fatal car crashes. In Clark's case, for whatever reason, police did not draw so-called "legal" blood, relying instead on the "medical" blood drawn at the hospital, Springer siiid. 179 Bradley Place 2 Blocks north of Publix Monday-Saturday 9:30-5:30 (Reg, Hours) Directions: 1-95 to Okeechobee Blvd. East.
