Kt HUH Lib CITY 1% The Arizona Republic MAIL Plwenix, Sat., Aug. IS, 1976 Beret 'exonerated? father-in-law believes Mangon armed, witness tells jury United Press International FT. BRAGG, N.C. — A man whose daughter and two granddaughters were slain brutally said yesterday he believed his son-in-law, charged with the murders, has been "completely exonerated." , Alfred Kassab of Stony Brook, Long Island, N.Y., issued the statement as his son-in-law, Capt. Jeffrey MacDonald o f Patchogue, N.Y., was being cross-examined behind closed doors at a hearing on his account of the claying. MacDonald's defense attorneys, the only source of information on happenings behind the closed doors, said MacDonald was giving testimony "consistent" with the version he tearfully gave on direct examination Thursday. MacDonald maintains his pregnant wife and two young daughters were killed by four intruders, three men and « long-haired blonde girl, who said repeatedly, "Acid is groovy." "I am quite satisfied that Capt. MacDonald has been completely exonerated, since no testimony has been presented, circumstantial or otherwise, against him," Kassab said. Kassab said he believed the hearings were closed to the public and news media because a "travesty of justice" was taking place, with a man "charged with three premeditated murders based only on a theory and without the slightest thread of evidence » • . • He said a "hue and cry" should arise across the nation "for a complete reform of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the curtailment of powers of general officers in regard to matters that are basically civilian and not military." Collins jury deliberating coed slaying United Press International ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A jury of six men and six women talked late into last night trying to decide whether John Norman Collins is guilty of murdering a coed. Collins' mother cried and prayed in a nearby church. After spending seven hours trying to decide whether the former college student was guilty of first - degree murder in the sex slayings of Karen Sue Beineman, the jury recessed. Deliberations were to resume this morning. Shortly after the jury began deliberating, a note was affixed with a six-cent stamp on the concrete steps of the prisoners entrance. "We're still rooting for you, John," the unsigned note said. Some of the jury's delibera- , tions were taken up in having : part of the testimony of six witnesses read back. The jurors also asked to see a composite drawing of a suspect made shortly after Collins' alleged victim disappeared and photographs taken by police when he was arrested. Washtenaw County Circuit Court Judge John Conlin told the jurors they must either find the 23 - year - old former college student guilty of first - degree murder or acquit him. In Michigan, conviction on a first - degree murder charge carries a mandatory life sentence which can be commuted only by a governor's pardon after at least 20 years have been served. Miss Beineman, a petite 18 • year • old freshman at Eastern Michigan University in neighboring Ypsilanti, where Collins was a senior, was the seventh young woman slain under similar circumstances within a two - year period around the twin university towns of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. No one has been charged in the other deaths, but Collins has been charged with the murder of a teen - age girl near Salinas, Calif., in June 1969. Monterey County authorities Mid they will immediately begin extradition pro? ceedingi no matter what the verdict is in the Beineman case. The Beineman girl disappeared July 23, 1969, and her naked, strangled body, bearing several acid • type burns, was found in a wooded ravine days lattr Defense attorney Bernard L. Segal of Philadelphia, president of the American Bar Association, said MacDonald had testified yesterday that he had no contact with Army investigators from initial questioning following the slaying until April 6, more than a month later. MacDonald said he never had been asked to help investigators construct composite drawings of the four persons he said had attacked his family. Segal expressed "amazement" that the Army had not made drawings, which he called a "very standard technique of all good police departments." Segal has maintained throughout the proceedings that the Army never really searched for any suspects and failed to put roadblocks in the vicinity of the MacDonald house. Segal said MacDonald had identified sketches drawn by a crime lab artist hired by the defense, who made the drawings on the basis of information supplied by MacDonald last week. Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Charles M. Manson took either a sword or a gun Into the home of a wealthy couple the night they were slain, Linda Kasabian said yesterday during the trial of Manson and three women on charges of killing Sharon Tate and four visitors to her home Aug. 9,1969, and the couple the following night. The young mother of two, winding up her third week on the stand as the star state witness, said that before Manson entered the home of market owners Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, "he stuck something in his pants... it was a gun or a sword, I don't know which." San Quentin guards transferred to safety SAN QUENTIN, Calif. (UPI) — San Quentin Prison officials said two guards involved in last week's Marin County shoot-out have been moved to protect them from possible inmate reprisals). Associate Warden James Park would not identify the two men who were among 20 guards in nearby San Rafael when gunfire claimed four lives in an abortive kidnap-escape attempt. The slain included a judge, two inmates and an accomplice. Mrs. Kasabian, 21, former clan member who won immunity from prosecution for her testimony, said that Manson entered the LaBianca home and tied up the couple, then came out and ordered three members of his hippie-type family to kill them. He had taken a "pirate's sword" with him when they left the family commune on the murder night, she said. Mrs. Kasabian experienced her first night of freedom in eight months Thursday after charges against her were formally dropped. She spent the evening at a hideaway apartment, guarded by two policemen and a matron. The prosecution wound up its redirect examination of Mrs. Kasabian yesterday morning and she was expected to go to her mother's home at Milford, N.H., some time next week after the defense completes its recross- examination. She was asked at one point if Manson, called "Christ" by his followers, ever told her he was Jesus Christ. She said "no," but "within my own self that is what I was looking for and I saw it in him." When did she stop believing he was Christ? "I guess you would call it a vision. I had a vision in my head and I saw who he really was when I saw those things happening — the killings at the Tate home." Did she think of Manson during the killings? Mrs. Kasabian, who testified she watched two of the victims die as she acted as lookout outside the Tate mansion, said: "I didn't think of him until I looked into Mr. Frykowski's eyes." That was the moment, she said, when she stopped thinking of Manson as Christ. Wojieiech Frykowski, a visitor at the Tate home, stumbled wounded out the door and died before her eyes, Mrs. Kasabian has said. Asked at another point about marijuana smoking at the group's movie ranch commune, Mrs. Kasabian said they didn't buy it but smoked leaves from a plant, nicknamed Elmer, they grew themselves.
