Prosecutors charged Kimmi Hardy with first-degree murder on Monday, saying she bought a gun a month before the slaying, wore maternity clothes for about five months, and even held a baby shower after the killing. Robert Hardy, 36, who prosecutors plan to charge as an accessory, told police his wife shot Theresa Lund, 34, a month ago in their basement and hid the body in a crawl space, according to court papers filed Monday.

"I still have to figure'out how they will be woven together." When he's not working on the piece, Friesen will be busy as "Cello Man," a performance of stories, anecdotes, poems and songs using masks and innovative cello techniques. He is making a video tape this fall and an album. The recordings will probably result in more invitations for performances. Friesen performed Monday at Meadowlark Ridge Elementary School, 2200 Glen, and Sunset Elementary School, 1510 W. Republic. Friesen uses masks belonging to his friend Rob Faust, who has a mask theater in New York. He was in Faust's studio trying on masks when he came up with the idea to use them with his cello. As an actor, Friesen takes on the character of the mask he V CRIME KELLY PRESNELL/The Salina Journal Eugene Friesen ponders a student's suggestion during his performance Monday at Sunset Elementary School In Salina wears as he talks to the students. As a musician, he reveals the character's emotions and personality on his cello. "The cello or any instrument is a vehicle for the personality," Friesen said. Through the music he can reach the students. "The music helps you "understand the words," he said. "You hear words all day long and you can become immune to them." But music can bring new passion to those words, he said. "It can awaken the deeper listener so the heart and soul can listen," he said. Store robbery suspect nabbed Man armed with pair of scissors holds up convenience store By SHARON MONTAGUE Tlie Salina Journal A robber armed with a pair of scissors made off with about $200 from Kwik Shop, 1121 W. Cloud, early Sunday after dragging a clerk outside. Two hours later, a man matching the robber's description was stopped by police in Hesston. Arrested was Albert D. Lewis, 31,745 Willow, who faces charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping. T PERSIAN GULF WAR Assistant Police Chief Glen Kochanowski said a clerk was working inside the store when a man entered. The man took a pair of scissors off a counter, grabbed the clerk from behind and held the scissors to his back, Kochanowski said. A woman walked into the store and tried to run out again when she discovered what was happening, Kochanowski said, but the robber ordered her to stay and to give him her money. Kochanowski said the robber reached into the woman's pocket and took a quarter. He then ordered the clerk to open the cash register and give him money. While inside, the robber also took two packages of Camel ciga- rettes, Kochanowski said. Still holding the clerk around the neck, the robber forced him outside and told him to lie down on the pavement until he left, Kochanowski said. Police issued a statewide alert, describing the suspect and the black sports car he was driving, Kochanowski said. At 6 a.m., Hesston police notified Salina police they had located a man matching the description. Kochanowski said the man's car had run out of gas. Salina police drove to Hesston and arrested Lewis, Kochanowski said. Another person who was with Lewis was not arrested, he said. Pentagon denies nerve gas story Newspaper: Generals told troops not to worry about nerve gas reports By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Pentagon said Monday there is "no basis" for a report that Desert Storm commanders — protected at their own headquarters — told troops not to worry about reports of nerve gas on the battlefield. The Birmingham News, in a report Sunday, cited log reports compiled for Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf at his headquarters in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to assess the threat of chemical weapons in the 1991 war against Iraq. The news report said U.S. commanders "sealed themselves into protective shelters in the opening days of the Persian Gulf War, and told troops to disregard repeated warnings that a toxic cloud from bombed chemical munitions was descending upon them." Some of the logs in question, made available to reporters at the Pentagon, refer to reports on Jan. 19 from Saudi soldiers near the border with Iraq "that a cloud of smoke is coming that way ... from CB (chemical-biological) targets." They also refer to several reports from Czech units of possible low- level mustard exposure. On Jan. 23, one log listing refers to Air Force officials reporting "yet another Czech unit chemical report. Their people in the same area checked it out and found nothing." The officer filling out the log added, "Told them to disregard any reports coming from Czechs." "We have reviewed the logs in question and find no basis for the reporter's conclusion that commanders sheltered themselves while ordering troops to disregard reports of a toxic cloud," said a statement issued Monday at the Pentagon. The logs do refer to a number of reports of possible chemical activity at a time that U.S. forces were bombing sites in Iraq. Iraqi forces were widely believed at the time to have chemical weapons in their possession.
