THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN Tuesday. November 19. 1991 T : Community Plans Rites For Baby By Kathrin Chavez Staff Writer CHECOTAH Baby Jane Doe had only a few minutes of life. Killed almost immediately after birth, she had no name and no identified survivors. But the brutality of her death has moved area residents, who have donated their time and services to ensure a funeral for the child, who was beaten to death last Tuesday. "It's pulled on all of us. There have been a lot of prayers, a lot of emotion," Cindy Smith of Smith Funeral Home said Monday. A man hunting at Jake's Lake, about 10 miles east of Checotah, told police he saw a woman across the lake giving birth to the baby last Tuesday. Afterward, a man with the woman hit the child and put her in a plastic garbage sack, Joseph Barnes told authorities. The pair ran and the baby was dead by the time Barnes could reach her. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Mcintosh County sheriffs office have been searching for the couple but have had no success, authorities report. Unidentified dead bodies usually receive a pauper's burial, but residents and businesses from as far away as Broken Arrow and Tulsa wanted to do more than that, Smith said. The funeral home is donating its services, Checotah municipal officials have given burial space in the .city cemetery and the Tulsa Wilbert Vault Co. has provided a combination casket-vault, Smith said. The Checotah Flower Shop is giving flowers for the casket, and the Gifford Monument Co. of Broken Arrow will contribute a grave monument, Smith said. A local woman has volunteered to sing at J the funeral, which will I be led by the Rev. Es-1 ter Bass of the Warner ? Assembly of God and! the Rev. Mike Asher of the Checotah First 5 United Methodist Church, Smith said. Report Covers FBI Agent's Wreck By Paul English Capitol Bureau FBI agent Gary G. Brewer was traveling an estimated 74 mph when his government car collided head-on with a pickup truck in south Oklahoma City, killing him and the other driver, an accident report released Monday shows. Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper M.R. Roe said in the report that the other driver, Michael T. Howze, 20, of Oklahoma City, apparently was going about 55 mph before the collision and about 45 mph at the time of impact. ., Roe's report also indicated that both Brewer, 44, of Norman, and Howze swerved. The right front of Brewer's car struck the left front of the pickup truck, knocking the truck backward about six feet, Roe said. Brewer was headed west in the inside, eastbound lane of Interstate 240 and Howze was traveling east in the same lane when the two collided about 200 yards west of Santa Fe Avenue, Roe said. The state medical examiner had said previously, that Brewer was intoxicated at the time of the accident, shortly after midnight Oct. 30. The examiner's office said Monday that results of a drug test on Brewer might be available this week. Roe said part of a wine bottle was found in Brewer's car. He said the seal had been broken. Roe said Brewer's car left no visible skid marks before the collision while Howze's truck left 46 feet of skid marks. Howze committed "no improper action," but Brewer was driving the wrong way on a one-way road, Roe said. Neither driver was wearing a stfat belt and both were pinned in their vehicles, the report states. Howze was taken to the Oklahoma County morgue while Brewer, the lead agent in the FBI investigation of Gov. David Walters, was taken by ' ambulance to Hillcrest Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

David Walters' son has waived his right to a trial in a misdemeanor drug case and may seek a plea arrangement in district court, a county prosecutor said Monday. Shaun Walters, 19, and his roommate, Ashley Acers, 20, each waived their rights to stand trial on a charge of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Irby Taylor, Cleveland County assistant district attorney, said the defendants' attorney may seek a plea bargain, but at this point there is no such agreement. Shaun Walters and Acers, both University of Oklahoma students, were charged in Cleveland County District Court Nov. 5 after Norman police found three pipes and two marijuana "bongs" in their Norman apartment at 1819 E Lindsey. Bongs are used to smoke marijuana. Officers also found Styrofoam cups, potting soil, a grow light and several seeds in a closet. Norman police are attempting to grow the seeds to determine if they produce marijuana plants. By Monday, one of the seeds had sprouted, but no analysis has been performed, Taylor said. Another misdemeanor marijuana possession charge could be filed based on test findings, he said. Taylor said the maximum penalty on the pending drug paraphernalia charge is a $1,000 fine and a year in the county jail. However, Taylor said maximum sentencing is not likely because it is their first offense. "I don't know anybody that's gotten the maximum on the first offense," he said. The case goes to court Dec. 23. Each has posted $500 bond.
