Testimony started Monday in the trial, which had taken two weeks to pick a jury. Giving of I evidence ended Thursday ana fi nal arguments took up much of Friday morning. The chief defense lawyer, Lloyd Lunsford of Houston, making his first murder case plea, told the jury in final arguments he-was 'making a poor boy's case the best that I can." "The evidence in this case is so full of holes you can see through them," Lunsford said Ashley might not even have been-anywhere near The mur der scene, he said, but prose cution evidence failed to pin that down. The state never even proved it was Tones who was killed, he said. Ashley Is a pitiful figure and I say this in front-of him and do not know what effect it . will have on him," Lunsford said.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) -Giant wanted postersire being put up here to aid police, in their search for a psycopathic killer who has struck four times in the past ten months. Composite drawings of the suspect's face and profile, done by a police artist, have been enlarged to fill 12 by 21-foot posters which will be plastered on six billboards around the city. The killer last struck about three weeks ago when he gunned down rockert expert Loren Bollinger in a downtown office. Last fall, police believe, the same man murdered two gas station attendants and seriously wounded a third. It was from the-wounded man, . Raymond Sigler, that a description of the killer was obtained. That description is about the only clue police have asto the identity of the murderer, whom they feel is a maniac who "kills for pleasure." They hope that the billboards will jar the memory of someone who has seen the suspect. "I see no way of solving this case until a private citizen with information steps forward,' said Homicide Squad Lt- Jerry Ryan. The first poster went up Friday and the other five will be put up next week. Ryan felt that the billboards would draw a good response from the public.
