Collins jury to reconvene for 3rd day I Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A jury ended its second day of deliberations last night without IB verdict in the trial of Johni Norman Collins for the slaying of a freshman coed at Eastern Michigan University more than a year ago. The jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations tomorrow morning. The jury of six men and six women had only two choices under the judge's charge: Guilty of first - degree murder or innocent. A conviction automatically would send Collins to prison for life under Michigan law. Cojlins, 23, is charged with killing Karen Sue Beineman, 18 a freshman at Eastern Michigan University, which Collins formerly attended. The • Grand Rapids girl was last seen alive July 23,1969. Three day later her naked and tortured body was discovered in a wooded gully. Jurors received the case at 11:8$ a.m. Friday after 17 days, of testimony and one day .devoted to final summation! by prosecution and de- fengf. Yesterday's deliberation* began shortly after noon, It j took six weeks to select the jury. THe state contended Collins kilUjd the girl in the basement of his uncle's home in neaiby Ypsilanti after picking her fup on a motorcycle while •he walked from the campus (Q a! wig shop.

Questioned by Col. Warren V. Rock, the hearing examiner fcho joined in the four hour* of cross examination, MacDonald said drug patients commonly showed paranoid tendencies that manifested themselves in threats. MacDonald has maintained his family was attacked by thrte men and a blonde woman, r who he said may have been on drugs. He said the woman repeatedly chanted, "Add is groovy." The Army originally described the incident as an apparent "ritual kffliftg" before it charged MacDonald. Attorney Bernard Segal of Philadelphia, president of the American Bar Association : and the only source ofinfor- ' matlon for newsmen who are •j barred from the proceedings, • said MacDonald illustrated ' three types of threats he had received. He said MacDonald ; related patients would either ; say, "I'm going to kill you," ; "I'll, get you" or "You'll be ' sorry for doing that." Rock, who must determine whether MacDonald faces a court-martial for the February slayings, recessed the hearing at the conclusion of yesterday's cross-examination 14 to allow prosecution attorneys time to prepare rebuttal testimony. He set Aug..25 as the tentative resumption date. ; Segal said Rock participated for about 45 minutes in the ; questioning. His final question, according to Segal, was, "Did you murder your wife and. children?" The doctor almost choked as he replied, 1 "No," Segal said. The prosecution laid out the alleged murder weapons before MacDonald—two paring kivefc, an ice pick and an 18- inchflong board about two Inches thick. He said he had never seen any of them before^ MacDonald also said he did not recognize two pictures the prosecution showed. One was of a male with a thin mustache, similar to a sketch dra^n by an artist under direction of MacDonald and the Jsecond a picture of a girl with* long black hair. ; MacDonald could not identify A hair brush found in his apartment that had brown ! hairs with light roots. It presumably didn't belong to any. one in the household.
