State Wednesday, Feb. 27, 1991 Kokomo (Ind.) Tribune 23 Phone bill ready for vote INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A bill to put a permanent ban on local measured telephone service has survived four attempts to rewrite the proposal. House Bill 1172 now is eligible for-a final vote by the House as Sentence option proposed INDIANAPOLIS (AP) murderers could be Sentenced to life in prison without parole under a bill on its way to the full Indiana House. The Courts and Criminal Code Committee voted 9-0 Tuesday for House Bill 1802, which would give judges and juries a new option in sentencing people convicted of murder accompanied by an aggravating circumstance such as robbery or rape. At present, a person found guilty in a capital case can be sentenced either to the death penalty or to a prison sentence of 40 to 60 years for murder.

After half of the prison sentence, the prisoner is eligible for parole. Sponsors said another punishment less severe than the death sentence but tougher than a determinate prison sentence is needed. "I think the public wants those people off the street," said Rep. Jesse M. Villalpando, a Griffith Democrat and sponsor of the bill.

"Some are getting out after 30 years, and under this they wouldn't be getting out. "Many people feel the 60-year sentence is insufficient. They think they're putting the person away for life, but they're not," said Villalpando. Villalpando's bill had the support of prosecutors, religious groups, the Indiana Civil Liberties Union and the grandson of the victim in a famous murder case. Bill Pelke of Portage, grandson of murder victim Ruth Pelke of Gary, said life imprisonment without parole is "something definitely worth talking about." Pake's grandmother, a Bible teacher, was killed in 1985 when several Gary school girls robbed Cooper, convicted of the murder committed when she was'.

15, originally was sentenced to dfcath before the state Supreme Court threw out the death penalty and ordered a 60-year prison term or her. "I think people in Indiana have he right to know that a person put i way will stay away," said Pelke, vho had supported overturning hooper's death sentence. Hg said polls show overwhelm- ng support for capital punishment also indicate that about half of hose who favor it would really prefer a life-imprisonment option. Larry Landis of the Public Defenders Council said 37 states have the death penalty and, of those, 25 also offer life imprisonment as an alternate sentence. Hoosier soldier killed in crash INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Department of Defense confirmed Tuesday that an Army warrant officer from Frankfort, was killed in the Persian Gulf War.

The report brings to two the number of state soldiers killed sincife the U.S.-led offensive against Iraqi troops in Kuwait began. Neither death has been combat related. The military identified the soldier as Chief Warrant Officer Michael S. Anderson, 36, of Frankfort. Anderson was aboard an Army heliqopter on a medical evacuation mission when it crashed in a rain" storm in western Saudi before dawn Thursday, said John Randt, spokesman for Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis.

Anderson, three other crewmen three wounded soldiers were tilled in the crash. The military las provided very few other details. Randt said the copter was ferry- hg wounded went it went down vhile trying to land. He said Anderson would have been the (Hot or copilot of the UH-60 llackhawk. Anderson had previously been Stationed at Fort Campbell, lefore being transferred to the (ulf region, authorities said.

According to unofficial records, he crash was the deadliest U.S. on-combat air crash since the Hies began bombing Iraqi cities Jan. 17. Another Indiana resident, Army Jeffrey Reel of rural Vincen- tes was killed Feb. 20 in a traffic iccident during maneuvers in taudi Arabia.

i Services will be at 11 a.m. EST Wednesday at the Indiana Pres- lyterian Church, five miles loutheast of Vincennes. It was unclear late Tuesday yhen or where services would be leld for Anderson. Other information regarding inderson was unavailable late luesday. early as today.

The bill would make permanent the current three-year measured service ban that is set to expire June 30. Under measured service, the traditional flat rate telephone bill that pays for unlimited local calling would be replaced by a bill with charges based on phone usage. Indiana Bell had proposed a trial of measured service when the Legislature approved a three-year ban in 1988. On Tuesday, Rep. Holland Webber, an Anderson Democrat who sponsors H.B.

1172, attempted to change his bill so it would call for another three-year ban, rather than a permanent one. "The telecommunications industry is changing so fast that I don't think it would be good public policy for this bill to go forward with a permanent ban," said Webber. "I believe we should come back and review this" every few years. Opponents of Webber's proposed change, voted down 59-40, said that if lawmakers opposed measured service, they should endorse a permanent ban of it. Subsequent legislatures could undo that ban if conditions in the telecommunications business change dramatically, opponents of Webber's amendment said.

The House also defeated three amendments Webber claimed were designed to sabotage his bill. On voice votes, lawmakers rejected attempts to put into the bill a ban on usage-based cable television billing and a limit on the monthly fees that could be assessed for calling special service 900 telephone numbers. Legislators also voted 78-16 against a proposal to prevent businesses such as hotels and hospitals from charging customers sharply more than the regular tariff for calls made from telephones at the businesses. In other action Tuesday, the 33rd working day of the 1991 session, a bill to reform the state's workers compensation system and raise payment levels to injured workers cleared the amendment stage with only one major change. Lawmakers voted 92-7 to remove farm workers from coverage under the bill.

Agricultural workers aren't covered by workers compensation, but the earlier version of H.B. 1517 had included them. Also, lawmakers rejected amendments that would have delayed proposed increases in benefit payments to injured workers and extended the time an injured worker had to wait after being injured before choosing a physician other than a company- approved doctor for treatment.
