Amplification on former county news article The Daily News inadvertently omitted some information in a Huntingdon County commissioners' story which appeared in the Jan. 25 edition of the newspaper. Regarding 911, the county will solicit Request for Proposals from Huntingdon Borough, as well as Mifflin and Blair counties. Also, the article failed to make note of a meeting held with Daily News Editor James Hunt and Mar-lene Sample regarding the newspaper's concern about The Sunshine Law. Hunt discussed with the commissioners his concern about a possible violation of the law during the handling of a recent county matter. DeHart's (Con't from Page 1) filed the appeal on behalf of DeHart, and Attorney Steven P. Passarello of Altoona and Attorney Patrick Thomassey of Monroeville. James T. Caldwell of the Pennsylvania State Police is the prosecuting officer. During the Monday morning session of court Judge Quigley explained the nature of the court action to the prospective jurors and introduced the lawyers and the court tipstaffs. The tipstaffs and Court Administrator Carol Lang distributed questionnaires to the jurors that were explained by Judge Quigley. He stressed to the prospective jurors that "there is no question as to Mr. DeHart's guilt of the crime of first degree murder, only whether he should receive life imprisonment or the death penalty." A key segment of the questionnaire asked the prospective jurors if they had any objections to imposing the death penalty. Judge Quigly informed the panel that the 'sentencing hearing' would likely last all week but that the jurors would not be sequestered during the court action. The jury panel was then divided into smaller groups to report for personal questioning as to their fitness for serving on the voir dire jury.
