NEW TRIAL AT STAKE Key Slaying Witness Could Save Trio By BILL DUNCAN" The man who helped convict three men for the 1959 shotgun slaying of Anaheim restaurant owner Leslie Simpson may well bold their lives ia balance again today when he testifies before a State Supreme Court referee in Los Angeles. Appearing as a prosecu- tioa witness, 26-year-old Michael P.osoto was the key witness during the original murder trial and is considered a key witness in thii proceeding. His testimony may determine if his half-brother, Joseph R o s o I o, and codef endants Frank Vlahovich and Donald Franklia win wia a new trial. The tearing was called after defense attorney* filed a petition for writ of error based primarily on a tape recording which purported to be the voice of Michael Rosoto retracting bis testimony ia an Orange County Superior Court trial that linked the three men to the slaying. Young Rosoto was in the court building Wednesday guarded by tilf a dozea sheriffs deputies wto had sealed kirn in a locked room down the corridor from where Judge Clarence Kia- cai4 was Uking testimony for the State Supreme Court. The defense contends Michael Rosoto gave perjured testimony in the original trial because he was granted immunity oa a pending robbery charge. · The defense nai also implied that Orange County authorities knew the testimony was false and had rehearsed the witness on what to say before the trial. The defense rested its case Wednesday afternoon after calling seven witnesses -- three of whoa testified Michael Rosoto had admitted to them that he lied on the witness stand. The state's case barely got onder way before the cocrt recessed for the day. Its first witness was Michael Rosoto*s mother,Mrs. Frances Barlo, of Seattle, Wash, who testified (o what she said was a "concerted campaign" by her stepdaughter, Delia Rosoto Wine, to force Michael to change testimony. She was brought cnder a severe barrage of questions oa cross examination. At c=e time Rosoto'f attorney, Sam Rice, forced her to admit sh« favored her own ion, Michael, to her stepson. Joe. Franklla's attorney, Paul Caruso, introducted an affidavit signed by Mrs. Bar- So in 1953. in which she swore that Michael was at a dirner party at the time he was alleged to have been robbing a Los Angeles market. Caruso introduced testimony from court records, which showed that Michael later confessed to the robbery. Caruso told the court Mrs. Firlo stould be impeached because it has been shown she lied to protect MichaeL Mrs. Barlo. who had to be admonished by the judge, blurted: "But this was all Joey's doing. He arranged for the affidavit."
