"Whether Sam Shcppard had intimacies with Susan Hayes, or any other woman had nothing to do with whether or not he killed his wife Marilyn," Corri^an said, cm- phasing what he repeatedly has told prospective jurors. Curvaceous Miss Hayes is a 24- year-oltl huspiUil lechnici»n who admitted beint,' intimate with the I defendant in California four months before his wife was bludgeoned to death July 4. She is expected to be a mam witness for the state. Three More Stated Corriagn's statement that Sheppard was in love with his wife wa.s in line with the case be presented in a bail hearing last month. During the hearing, in which bail was denied Slu:ppard, Corrlan presented several witnesses whose testimony gave the impression the Shcppurds were a happily married couple. In yesterday's trial session, three more substitute jurors were seated. That made a total of five new jurors picked ill the past two days to replace those excused by peremptory challcncs. The state now has used up three of Its six challenges while the defense lias u.sed only two. Pcremp- i tory challenges enable either side to dismiss tentative Jurors without a given reason.
