Mrs. Parsons yesterday won a change of venue from El Paso, where she is charged in the fatal shooting February 16 of Lt. Richard O. Parsons. The state prosecutor said he would seek the death penalty. Earlier, a District Court jury in El Paso decreed that Mrs. Parsons is sane now and was sane at the time of the shooting. The decree ended a -three-week hearing. Mrs. Parsons admittedly shot and killed her young husband of .six weeks, and shortly afterward entered a sanitarium for mental treatment. She was to re-enter the sanitarium today to resume the treatment. .Her attorneys contended she was not sane and should not be tried.
