New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 27, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2A — HeRALD-ZeITUNG — Friday, June 27, 2003Today Contact Features Editor Brian Grant, 625-9144 ext. 222 World Briefly- Jury: Woman guilty of murder in windshield death FORT WORTH, Tfexas (AP) — A jury took less than an hour Thursday to convict a former nurse’s aide of murder for hitting a homeless man with her car, driving home with his mangled body jammed in the windshield and leaving him to die in her garage. Chante Jawan Mallard, 27, looked down and cried silently as the judge read the verdict, which could bring a life sentence. Later Thursday, at her sentencing hearing, Mallard tearfully apologized to Gregory Biggs’ son and her own family, saying her mind had been too muddled by fear and drugs to call for help. “I couldn’t think to do the right thing,” she said. After a night of drinking, smoking pot and taking Ecstasy, Mallard ran into Biggs, 37, with her Chevrolet Cavalier as he walked along the side of a highway in the early hours of Oct. 26, 2001. He was hit with such force that his head and shoulders went through the windshield. Medicare bills advancing in both House, Senate WASHINGTON (AP) — Medicare legislation advanced on both sides of the Capitol on Thursday, as the Republican-controlled House and Senate worked toward passage of bills offering prescription drug coverage to older people and giving private insurance companies a sweeping role in the program. “Tbday we will take the first steps in creating the next generation of health care," said Rep. Deborah Bryce, R-Ohio. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California acknowledged that the GOP-backed measure would pass and many Democrats wore black armbands to dramatize their claim that Republicans were intent on killing Medicare. In the Senate, a bipartisan coalition pushed a more centrist bill that included fewer of the free-market changes sought by censervat ives. Passage was not in doubt, particularly after a 70-26 vote to divide the final $12 billion available unde*r the bill between priorities favored by Republicans and Democrats.
