PAULSON The Associated Press DENVER — A judge dealt setbacks Friday to both sides in the Oklahoma City bombing case, forbidding suspect Timothy McVeigh to grant selected media interviews and upholding his trial attendance ban on victims who also plan to testify. U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch also suppressed test results from the detonation of a 5,000-pound fertilizer bomb this year in New Mexico. He ruled defense attorneys had been improperly excluded from observing the tests, but said results from two other bomb tests could be introduced at the trial. In another ruling, Matsch ordered federal prosecutors to turn over grand jury testimony from Michael Fortier and his wife, Lori, to defense attorneys, saying the testimony could help the defense. Lori Fortier reportedly told how McVeigh set cans of soup on the kitchen floor to show how barrels of explosives could be arranged to create a bomb of mass destruction. In upholding his previously imposed ban on bomb victims attend- TCOURTS Health screenings set for preschool children Parents with concerns about their preschooler's walking, talking, seeing, hearing or motor skills can schedule an appointment to have their children screened for free on Nov. 8 by the Central Kansas Cooperative in Education. The screenings are for preschool-age children from age 21/2 through 5 who exhibit problems and live in Dickinson, Ellsworth, Ottawa or Saline counties.. For an appointment and the location of the screening, parents need to call Pat Gilreath at 913827-0301. Openings fill quickly. The screening is sponsored by the cooperative, Salina Regional Health Center Infant Child Development Program, local community health departments, the Central Kansas Mental Health Center and Head Start. From Staff Reports NICHOLS MCVEIGH ing the trial if they planned to testify during the trial's sentencing phase, Matsch said he understood the victims' pain, but felt they would be influenced by any trial testimony they heard. "It wasn't an offhand ruling. I have reconsidered it before and carefully reconsidered it now," he said, in rejecting the prosecution motion to drop his ban. "In my mind there is simply no way to separate it." Jannie Coverdale, who lost two young grandsons in the bombing, said she and other family members believe their testimony would not be affected by watching the trial. But Dr. Paul Heath, who survived the explosion, said the judge's decision was "absolutely on target," because of studies that concluded watching a trial does influence witnesses. The rulings came on the final day of a three-day hearing on defense motions to separate the trials of McVeigh and co-defendant Terry Nichols. Holocaust survivor sues Swiss banks for fortune Family fortune was stashed in WWII, has never been found By The Associated Press NEW YORK—As the Nazi threat in Europe grew, Gizella Weisshaus' father put his wealth in the one place he thought it would be safe: a Swiss bank account. But instead of reclaiming it, he perished in Auschwitz with his wife and six WEISSHAUS children. Only Gizella survived. Three times she has been to Switzerland to find her inheritance, only to come away empty-handed. Now Weisshaus, 66, a Brooklyn Duo suspected in murders of 3 older people By The Associated Press DURANGO, Colo. — A routine traffic stop led to the arrest of a young couple suspected of bludgeoning three elderly people to death during a cross-country crime spree, authorities said. John A. Esposito, 21, and Alicia Woodward, 18, both of Pemberton Township, N.J., were ordered held without bond Thursday on a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution for murder in Georgia. The two are wanted in Georgia for the death of Lola Davis, 85, Lumberton, N.C. Her bludgeoned body was found Sept. 20 in a field in Madison, Ga., about 50 miles east of Atlanta. She had been abducted from a supermarket parking lot in Lumberton the day before. Authorities also suspect the pair in the deaths of Lawrence Snider, 91, and his wife, Marguarite, 86, of Oklahoma City, Their bodies were found Thursday. grandmother of 27, is suing two Swiss banks in a $20 billion class- action lawsuit. She is seeking disclosure of any dormant accounts and restitution for all Nazi victims whose assets disappeared in Switzerland. "There's no question there's an account. I'm just trying to find out who's holding it or where it is," she said after filing the lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn. The suit, which her lawyer says is the first of its kind, is against the Swiss Bank Corp., the Union Bank of Switzerland and others as yet unidentified. Weisshaus was born into a wealthy family in Romania, part of an ultra-Orthodox community. Her father made a living setting up foreign bank accounts for others. Their comfortable life ended when they were deported to Auschwitz.
