U.S. Supreme Court hears case once more King holiday tributes to honor his wife ATLANTA (AP) - On a recent afternoon, Jeffrey and Liza Dunn brought their daughter and niece to the center dedicated to the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., where the family look a moment to sit by the crypl of the civil rights icon and his wife, Coret-la. There, at (he reflecting pool, the Plainfield, N.J., couple told the girls about King's dreams of racial harmony, economic equality and world peace. They also spoke of a dedicated widow, devoted mother and matriarch of the civil rights movement, who gracefully struggled against war, poverty and racism for years even after her husband was killed. "Their partnership is the foundation of everything we've benefited from," Jeffrey Dunn, '19, said. "And even in her absence, she leaves a legacy, a commitment to his dream." This year's Martin Luther King |r. holiday, first observed more than two decades ago, will be the first without Corelta Scott King, who died nearly a year ago. Iler absence at the holiday activities held each year in King's hometown of Atlanta will be a reminder that the standard bearer of King's vision is now gone - and that the holiday has evolved to reflect the accomplishments and mission of both the dreamer and the dream keeper. "Her commitment and her accomplishments were equal to his," Spel-man College history professor William Jclani Cobb said. "To view her as an equal in helping to establish racial democracy in America would be fitting." LIVINGSTON (AP) - A high-level judicial spat with life-and-death consequences involving a condemned Texas man is back before the U.S. Supreme Court for an unusual second time in three years. Justices agreed to look again at LaRoyce Lathair Smith's argument that the jury in his sentencing phase was given deficient instructions after Texas's top criminal appeals court ignored their concerns about die jury's decision more than a decade ago. Smith is one of three condemned Texas men whose cases are being argued before justices Wednesday. Smith argues his sentencing jury wasn't allowed to sufficiently consider the abuse and neglect he suffered as a child. The two others, Brent Ray Brewer and Jalil Abdul-Kabir, are raising similar claims after the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals turned down their appeals. The Supreme Court has combined their two cases into a single argument, also to be heard on Wednesday. The state appeals court upheld Smith's conviction despite the high court's concerns. "My argument is the Court of Criminal Appeals didn't comply to the holding of the Supreme Court decision," said Jordan Steiker, Smith's lawyer. "It's not unheard of, but not common either," Erwin Chemerinsky, a Duke University law professor who urged the justices to take Smith's case a second time. "Usually when it happens, the Supreme Court does not take well to what they regard as disobedience by a lower court." Texas has executed 380 prisoners over the past 24 years, making it by far the nation's most active death penalty state. A favorable decision from the high court could mean new sentencing trials for the three and possibly affect a few dozen other inmates sent to Texas' death row in the late 1980s and early 1990s who might have been sentenced under similar jury instructions. Smith, Abdul-Kabir and Brewer are not contesting their guilt. Smith was convicted of the 1991 fatal shooting and stabbing of Jennifer Soto, a 19-year-old Dallas fast-food restaurant night manager who was tortured in a robbery that netted no money. Business jet crash in L.A. claims lives of 2 people LOS ANGELES (AP) - A small business jet crashed while taking off from Van Nuys Airport on Friday, killing two people, officials said. A witness said the door of a nose compartment on the plane was open as it took off. The plane had been carrying only its two crew members when it went down around 11 a.m., said Joe Miller, a dispatcher with Sun Quest Executive Air Charter, which operated the plane. Two people aboard were confirmed dead, said Assistant Fire Chief Tim Manning. National Transportation Safety Board investigator Howard Plagens said the names of the victims would be released once they were identified by the coroner's office. The plane's left-hand nose-baggage door was "wide open" as it took off, and the jet was veering side-to-side at a low speed, said witness Steve Purwin, a corporate jet pilot with 25 years experience. Little remained of twin-engine Cessna Citation but smoldering debris in a field near the San Fernando Valley airport. No nearby structures appeared to be damaged. The plane had been leaving the airport in die Los Angeles suburbs, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said. It was headed to Long Beach, about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. ?
