The reversal was an indication of how desperate the reclusive communist government is for outside aid. If the March 5 talks take place, they would mark the first time North Korea has sat down to direct negotiations involving rival South Arrest may clear up 25-year The Associated Press ORANGEBURG, S.C'. One October night nearly 25 years ago, Trooper Roy Caffey radioed a dispatcher to say that he would meet his relief at the Interstate 26 interchange just north of tow n. When the second Highway Patrol car arrived at the spot, Mr. Caffey, a 25-year patrol veteran, wasn't there. Then the radio crackled: Officer down, shot with his own gun. Mr. Caffey was found next to his cruiser a few miles away. "They said he was shot in the face so many times they had to look at his name badge to Trooper Caffey see who he was," said his son, Robert Caffey, who was 15 at the time and who has pressed authorities for 24 years to solve the case. On Feb. 14, authorities said they finally broke the case: Betsy Rourk Kemmerlin, 41, was arrested, and prosecutor Walter Bailey said he will charge her with Mr. Caffey's 1972 murder. Investigators wouldn't say what led them- to Ms. Kemmerlin and refused to give a motive for the slaying.- The role she is alleged to have played has not been disclosed.

Gratiot, MI Korea, which it calls a U S. puppet North Korea's agreement came after South Korea and the United States promised $16 million in food aid and Seoul held out the carrot of much more help if the talks are fruitful. North Korea had threatened to stay away from the proposed talks, involving the United Slates, China and the tw o Koreas, unless it gets badly needed U.S. grain. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who arrived in Seoul on today as part of an 11-day international trip, planned to consult with South Korean officials about North Korea's decision to attend the New York talks, said spokesman Nicholas Bums. Ms. Albright plans to discuss food aid and other policies toward North Korea with President Kim and other South Korean officials Mr. Bailey said Ms. Kemmerlin implicated her brother and another man both now dead as accomplices. Her brother was killed in a 1981 traffic accident; the other man was shot to death three years later in a domestic dispute. Ms. Kemmerlin was 16 at the time Mr. Caffey was shot, so her case first went to Family Court, where a judge sent the case to criminal court, where she will be tried as an adult. She is under house arrest. After the slaying, at least three motorists reported seeing a red car, perhaps a Mustang, stopped by the road and at least two men approaching the cruiser. The red car never was found. There apparently was a struggle inside the cruiser. The dome light was smashed and the officer's hat was crushed. Mr. Caffey's pistol and holster never were found. "We just never gave up," Robert Caffey said. "We wanted the people in the state of South Carolina to know that somebody killed not only a Highway Patrol officer but a father. I wanted to know who did it." After his years of frustration, things began to change in 1993, the ' same year the Highway Patrol dedicated its Orangeburg building in Mr. Caffey's honor. A short time later, Robert Caffey met with the chief of the State Law Enforcement Division, who assigned new agents to the case. The next year, the shooting was featured on TV's Unsolved Mvs-' 1 I l--lln-l-V J-l Do M Buy Furniture NOW AND MISS THESE HUGE SAVINGS during her visit here. It is uncertain whether the preliminary talks will lead to full peace negotiations. But North Korea's decision almost certainly will improve relations with South Korea, which have been especially strained by the recent defection of a high-ranking official. There will be a "joint briefing on the four-way talks" in New York on March 5, the North's official Korean Central New s Agency said, quoting an unidentified Foreign Ministry spokesman. In the session, U.S. and South Korean officials will explain the format of the Korean peace talks, first proposed by President Clinton and South Korean President Kim Young-sam in April 1996. The proposed talks are aimed at a permanent peace treaty to replace an armistice that ended the 1950- ' ' 1 ' I Li The Associated Press MYSTERY: Betsy Kemmerlin of Santee, S.C, leaves the Orangeburg County Courthouse.

Also, a behavioral scientist who helped investigate the Susan Smith child murders drew up personality profiles of the killers. Then last week, Mr. Bailey announced Ms. Kemmerlin's arrest. "Her statement is she knows nothing about a murder," said her lawyer, Thomas Sims. As for Ms. Kemmerlin's role in the slaying, Mr. Bailey said: "The hand of one is the hand of all, and we don't have to prove who the trigger person was. If I didn't have a strong case, I wouldn't have gone to the arrest." (SO Years Is Coming To An End Thank you for your support over the last 6 decades.

Lacking a peace treaty, the Korean Peninsula remains technically at war. The border between North and South is the world's most heavily armed. North Korea delayed preliminary talks, initially set for Jan. 29, citing Washington's failure to help it obtain food. The March S talks w ill be led by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charles Kartman, South Korea's Assistant Foreign Minister Song Young-shik and North Korea's Assistant Foreign Minister Kim Kyc Kwan, Seoul officials said. After the one-day session, the United States and North Korea will hold a separate meeting, they said. The New York talks will take place less than a month after the defection of Hwang Jang Yop, the highest North Korean official ever to seek asylum in South Korea. mystery TT UMBTON jjjALL A i -7 v-- Sarnia, Ontario (right off Hwy. 402 at Modeland Rd.
