President Kennedy was assassinated last Nov 22 Ruby has been in jail since Nov 24 when he shot Lee Har vey Oswald the assassin of the President Since Marrh u ho has been under the death sen tence imposed by a jury which found him guilty of murder with malice Rubys lawyers hope to win a reversal of this verdict when they argue before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in Austin sometime next spring will contend among oth er things that local conditions made it impossible for Ruby to get a fair trial in Dallas and that testimony from certain police officers which tended to show malice on Rubys part should have been ruled inadmis sible A succession of attorneys have joined and left the Ruby defense team since Mclvin Belli was dismissed after IhcUrial At present Phil Burleson of Dallas and Joe Tonahill of Jasper Tex are the attorneys of record in the case with Sol Dann of Detroit apparently act ing in a consultant capacity for the Ruby family Tonahill said Ruby might be a free man in a year if the Austin court reverses the case If the appellate court sup ports us on the issue of inadmis sible police testimony he said then the element of mal ice will be gone from the case Murder
