Richard Fredericks killed his wife in self defense and doesn't remember anything about mutilating her body after the crime last Jan. 7. he testified In his own defense yester- oav. Fredericks, 41-year-old ac counting machine operator, was traced to New Jersey several weeks after the killing at his Van Nuys home, but before his wife's handless body was found in a Baja California arroyo. In the closing development of the defense's case, Freder icks took the stand in Superior Judge Harold W. Schweitzer's court late in the day. He told the jury he was edging the lawn in the back yard when his wife ran out the back door and approached him with a butcher knife in her hand. 'Had Knife in Hand' "She was coming at me very rapidly," the slick-haired, pasty-faced witness told the jury of eight men and four women. "She had the knife in her right hand." Fredericks said just after his wife. Ruth Hilda. 32, mother of their three children, yelled an implication at him she tripped and fell headlong near where he was working. He said the knife flew from her hand and that he instinctively grabbed a croquet mallet he had been using to drive stakes, and struck her over the head with it. Fredericks denied remembering anything of what happened after he struck the first blow. He remembered and described graphically, however, a scene in which he said his wife came home intoxicated and otherwise exhibiting evidence of an overnight interlude. Earlier in the day. six former neighbors of Mrs. Fredericks testified that she had planned to kill her mate.

Mrs. Viola Coulomhe, 15213 Willard St., said Mrs. Fredericks told her one night last December: "Tonight's the first time I ever had dinner on time for him and he's late." Mrs. Coulomb said that was the first time in a considerable period that Fredericks had been delaved at the end of his work day. The witness added that Mrs Fredericks then told her. "I've chased the around a couple of times, but this time I'll get him!'
