TOUGH DECISION "They have a tough decision to make." he said of the seven men and five women on the jury. "We will point out facts we think are important, the defense will point out his menial illness. But there is no kidding about it. it will be a tough decision." Grant B. Cooper. Sirhan's chief defense counsel, had not decided Friday what witnesses to call--if any. The Sirhan jury can choose only between life or death for Kennedy's assassin. A deadlock would require the judge to impanel a new jury or take the case himself and sentence Sirhan to life. State law prohibits parole of a prisoner sentenced to first degree life for at least seven years, and most serve be- vond then. ton.
