   Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - December 11, 1973, Long Beach, California                               rights an issue A suspect's right to re- main-silent under police questioning became the focal point Monday in the preliminary hejring ot Ali Bayati, a 32-year-old Long Beach Slate University lecturer charged in the knife slayings of his fi- ance and her male friend.' Testimony of the two police officers who arrest- ed Bayati Nov. 16 was challenged by Bayati's attorney, William Pills- bury, who said everything the defendant told police at, the time of his arrest should 'be stricken from- Monday's testimony. Neither officer told the defendant of his "Miranda Pillsbury argued. The U.S. Supreme Court's 1966 "Miranda" decision upheld the right of a criminal suspect to remain silent under police questioning and to have legal counsel present. Pillsbury made, the objections after Officers William Brdugh and Allen Huff testified that Bayati made implicating state- ments when he was ar- rested in his apartment and while being taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of stab wounds. Brough and Huff said Bayati made the state- ments voluntarily, without prompting from officers. Municipal Judge W. H. Winston overruled Pills- bury 's objections on grounds the alleged state- ments seemed to be voluntary, although both officers included the stazement in their writ- ten reports. Brough 'said he found the body f a woman, later identified as 28-year-old Elizabeth Ann Johnson, of 210 Euclid Ave., in the de- fendant's apartment at 211 Euclid Ave. he, another a paramedic had to handcuff the de- fendant .when he became 'agitated as other par'ame- dies administered first aid to Miss Johnson. She was pronounced dead scene. Huff said he found the body of Dennis Steven Arena, 30, in one of Miss Johnson's bedrooms. Huff said Arena appeared to have died of several stab wounds in the chest and arm. Bayati was treated at the hospital for stab wounds of unknown ori- gin. Bayati was ordered to appear Dec. 24 for Superi- or Court arraignment and was remanded to sheriff's custody without bail. By JOHN SHEEHAN Staff Writer The prosecution Mon- day spun a web of bloody fingerprints'around mur- der defendant Don James Meyers, linking him fur- ther to the blood-spattered apartment of a bludgeon- ed Santa Monica school- teacher. Deputy Dist. Atty. Dinko Bozanich opened the second week of Meyers' trial by calling a Long Beach police lab technician who testified his 25 years experience comparing fingerprints left no doubt that bloody prints found on Hollis Voas' bedroom wall and' garage door belonged to the defendant. Officer Wally Dillon said Mayers' prints were found on a drinking glass in the victim's apartment at 740 Orizaba Ave. last April 18, and on the wall and'garage door of the victim's home. Dillon said Meyers' prints at the scene were included from all four lin- gers and thumb of the right .hand and two from the left. Dillon said other bloody prints found around the ransacked apartment were too smeared for identifica- tion. An Independent, Press- Telegram Secret Witness named Voas as the victim before police could estab- lish his idejitity. .Voas was found by a state Fish and Game offi- cer tied, hand .and foot about 12 hours after medi- cal examiners said the victim died of massive internal injuries inflicted in a beating. Testimony Monday also included recollections of the victim by Dr. Bob Lambson, principal of John Adams Junior High School, Santa Monica, where the victim taught mathematics. Lambson said he knew the victim for about 20 years and described Voas as "an obese man who was almost a sissy. "That's the only word 1 can think of to describe Lambson said. Hayes to meet with Simon Our L.A. Bureau Supervisor James Hayes plans to leave for Washington this afternoon for a scheduled meeting with new federal energy czar William Simon Wednesday. Hayes, who recently re- turned from a Washington trip to discuss the energy crisis with various offi- cials, also will meet Wednesday with Sen.
