Kersey Town Board challenged three others but was ovverruled by District Court Judge Daniel Shannon. Shannon denied Tuesday a defense motion that Taylor be returned to Folsom Prison because the time limit for his custody here had expired. California authorities had granted temporary custody of Taylor for the trial. Taylor's attorneys contended the 120-day limit expired on Monday, and the actual trial had not yet begun. Shannon, however, ruled (hat the trial began with the start of jury selection April 9. One prospective juror admitted to a defense attorney he doubted his ability to be fair and impartial in considering the evidence. The man, who has daughters aged 16 and 17, was dismissed because of his admitted bias. A woman, later dismissed by peremptory challenge, related under questioning that her former husband's cousin was a slaying victim of the Manson family.

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- A mother found two of her children and their playmate dead of suffocation when she opened the door of an aban- donedfreezer, authorities said. City Policeman Ralph Nixon said Mrs. David McCamas went looking for her children Tuesday afternoon when they failed to return home. Nixon said the three apparently crawled into the old freezer, described as a chest type with an outside latch, and became trapped. Bonneville County Coroner Vernal Kydalch identified the victims as Preston Outcelt, 5, son of Mr and Mrs. John W. Oulcelt of Idaho Falls, and Todd, 6, and Michelle, 4, children of Mr. and Mrs. McCamas. Rydalch said the three probably had been in the freezer for about 90 minutes, and estimated they had been dead for an hour when Mrs. McCamas found them.

LITTLETON,. Colo. (AP) -District Court Judge Richard Greene.denied Tuesday a motion for sentence reduction for an 18-year-old youth convicted in connection with the firebombing deaths of five members of'an Aurora family last Palm Sunday. Dilmon Ray Nixon Jr. was one of four youths convicted in the deaths of Wilbur Routon, his wife, a son and two daughters in their home. Only Rou- .ton's mother and an li-year-old .son were rescued. Greene denied the motion because Nixon "had already gotten two major breaks." One of thotebreiki, Greene explained, was the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on the unconstitutionality of the death penalty. The other, he said, was the revision of Colorado's Criminal Code changing the penalty for second-degree murder from 10 years to life to 10 to 50 year's in the ·penitentiary. Greene also said Nixon's attorney "presented nothing that I hadn't heard prior to the original sentencing'.' last October. The attorney, Edward Sherman, said he will petition the' court to transfer Nixon from flying forward, backward, side- the earliest sleighs" in Canada, the state prison to the state re- wise , a nd of remaining statioha- was usually just a box mounted Fnpmarnmf at Hiiona Vlora .... :-- IU.. _ j _ on wooden runners. formatory at Buena Vista^ Hummingbirds are capable of The jumper, a term used for ry in the air.
