North White Ward Criswell WINAMAC — A Winamac man is being credited with saving the life of an 11-year-old Winamac boy Thursday. Raymond Shakelford, son of Sandra Souser, Winamac, was burned in a fire and explosion on the northwest side of town on a lot where used barrels were stored. Shakelford suffered second and third degree burns and was listed in satisfactory condition Saturday at Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. Tom J. Murray, Winamac, covered Shakelford with a coat and rolled him on the ground to extinguish the fire. Shakelford was burned when he went to investigate smoke he saw coming from an area where used empty barrels were stored. According to Winamac Fire Chief Dave Barr, the barrels had a type of petroleum residue inside. Barr said the lot was recently purchased by Farm Bureau Co-op which is located nearby on Madison Street. Murray was near the scene of the fire putting a fertilizer tank on his truck at Farm Bureau Co-op when he heard a "big boom." Murray said he saw a cloud of black smoke and heard a child screaming after the explosion. He then saw the boy on fire and ran toward Shakelford, who was running in circles until he heard Murray calling to him. According to Murray, Shakelford suffered the worst burns on his back below the waist. He said the boy's hair had also been on fire. Murray said that he tried to get as much clothing off Shakelford as he could without hurting him. Murray said Shakelford told him he went to see what was causing the smoke and shortly after he found the fire, there was an explosion. Murray said Shakelford told him he had seen two boys running from the fire. The Winamac Fire Department responded with two trucks and 14 men. The Pulaski County Ambulance transported Shakelford to Pulaski Memorial Hospital where he was treated before being transferred. An investigator from the state fire marshal's office will investigate the cause of the fire Monday, according to Barr. The winner of the Regional Spelling Bee will travel to Washington, D.C., to compete in the National Spelling Bee during the last week in May. All expenses will be paid by the Pharos-Tribune. 4 Injured In Medaryville Accident Johnny Kurdelak, 11-year-old son of Gerald and Loretta K.

Police Slaying Verdict Is Guilty RICHMOND (AP) — A Wayne Superior Court jury found Marvin D. Castor guilty Friday of murdering former Hancock County Sheriff Malcolm E. Grass during a Shootout two years ago. The jury was to begin hearing evidence Saturday on whether Castor, 47, of Greenfield, should die in the electric chair at the Indiana State Prison. Castor interrupted final proceedings several times, trying to retake the stand to present evi- dence he said would prove his innocence. Judge Robert L. Reinke warned Castor several times to behave, and the defen- dent finally was escorted from the courthouse. Grass, then a deputy sheriff, died from a ricocheting bullet on May 8, 1986. The shooting occurred in the driveway of a Hancock County service station as he and five FBI agents moved in to arrest the defendant and his brother, Gerald D. Castor, 38, of Greenfield, on extortion charges. Marvin Castor, who testified in his own defense, admitted shooting Grass but argued the victim and the other lawmen did not identify themselves and that he feared for his life, suspecting they might be organized crime hitmen. The brothers were suspects in a $250,000 extortion scheme %J SERVICE CENTER "Complete Appliance Service On All Brands" Appliances, Refrigerators, Air Conditioners, Microwaves Parts Sales and Used Appliances • Open- Monday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tue. thru Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Thursday Factory Authorized Service For 20 Major Brand Names Two Locations 423 E. 9th, Rochester, Phone 223-3823 318 E. 5th, Logansport, Phone 753-4747 KINGS HATCHERY & FEEDS HAVE LIVE DUCKLINGS, BUNNIES, AND CHICKS TO DELIGHT THE KIDS AT EASTER HATCHERY tthondNonh KINGS AND FEEDS 7533718 Scott Mcllvain in the front passenger seat.

Prosecutors said Castor could not claim he was trying to protect himself in the incident because he was carrying a handgun without a permit at the time. Since he was committing a crime, the self-defense claim was inadmissable in court, attorneys said. Castor also was found guilty on the weapons charge.
