FAX NUMBERS ALL DEPARTMENTS 823-3207 NEWS DEPARTMENT 827-6363 Man arrested in murder of fiancee Suspect had accused black man of killing fiancee during robbery By The Associated Press BALTIMORE — A- white man who told police a black man killed his fiancee was arrested Monday and charged with offering an acquaintance $20,000 to do the crime. Robert Harris, 23, and the alleged triggerman Russell Brill, 22, of Baltimore, face first-degree murder and felony handgun charges in the death of Theresa McLeod, said Rob Weinhold, a police spokesman. They were jailed pending a bail hearing. "They attempted to and, we believe they did, carry out a staged robbery this past Friday evening, and during the course of the staged robbery Miss McLeod was in fact murdered," Weinhold said. A police source said Brill, who also is white, confessed to being the triggerman and implicated Harris. Police spent several hours Friday night canvassing the neighborhood around the park for a suspect. But investigators said inconsistencies in Harris' story led them to consider him a suspect. Authorities believe Harris' motive was financial, but they did not elaborate. He has refused to answer police questions since he became a suspect. The case drew comparisons to several highly publicized cases in which white killers attempted to blame black suspects. In 1990, Charles Stuart accused a black man of killing his wife in Boston. He committed suicide hours after police learned from his brother that Stuart murdered his wife himself. Susan Smith was convicted last year in South Carolina of drowning her two children. At first, the white woman claimed a black man kidnapped the boys during a carjacking. T AIDS TREATMENT Mixture of drugs effective i" Researchers excited . by therapy that slows, • but doesn't cure, AIDS By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A triple- punch combination of an experimental new AIDS drug and two others already on the market is by far the most potent treatment yet for people infected with the deadly virus, researchers reported Monday. : The therapy does not cure AIDS. At best, it will slow and perhaps stall the disease for long periods. Even this could be a significant advance, because currently available virus medicines do little to extend AIDS patients' lives. The treatment involves one of a new class of drugs called protease inhibitors and is in early stages of human testing. Nevertheless, AIDS researchers who have seen many promising initial results go sour in the past are enthusiastic about the latest findings. "It's wonderfully exciting. It's a milestone," said Dr. Gerald Friedland of Yale University. Friedland worried about what to do for patients during the six months or so he estimated it will take the new drug to win approval for sale. The key to the new combination is indinavir, an experimental protease inhibitor developed by Merck & Co. It is combined with the standard AIDS medicines AZT and 3TC. Dr. Roy Gulick and colleagues from New York University gave the combination to 26 patients. After six months, they could find no measurable trace of the AIDS virus in 24 of them. Researchers say it is still too soon to know how long this effect will last. "This is the best response of any anti-retroviral therapy that has been seen to date," Gulick said.. The three-drug combination reduced the amount of HIV, the AIDS virus, by 99 percent to levels that could not be detected by sta'n- dard laboratory tests in 24 of 26 patients. The effect has lasted for nearly six months in one study," said Dr. Emilio Emini a r.e- searcher at Merck. Many scientists expressed optimism about the findings, in part because it was one of the few bits of good news about AIDS in a long time. in the Salina Business Community V- "Education for Living' March 2,1996 McPherson Country Club If you don't design an estate plan c someone else will.
