Advocate (Newspaper) - March 28, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 323 TELEPHONE H! 6-1451 VICTORIA, TEXAS, SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1964 Established New Trial Asked in Gray Case Juror Seen Illiterate Contending lhal a member of Ihe jury was not qualified (o serve because he can not read and write, an amended motion for a new trial for George E. (Red) Gray was filed in 24ih District Court Friday morning. The defense contends that al- though Nalhan Hill, a 74-year- old ranch hand, testified while being questioned as a prospec- tive juror that he could read and write with ease, it had been learned through an affida- vit made by W. G. (Bill) Lincl- sey of 605 N. Moody St., that Hill wns "unable to read :md write with Ihe ability to under- stand and comprehend the sim- plest of sentences." Hill served on the jury that on Feb. 29 assessed Gray a five- year prison term after finding him guilty of murder without malice in connection with the shotgun death of James Roger (Dutch) Casparis on a parking lot at Continental fnn, 2702 Houston Highway, last Oct. 12. Free On Itoml Gray is presently free on 000 bond pending the appeal of the verdict. If .Judge .Joe Kelly overrules the new trial request, it is ex- pected lhat Percy Foreman, noled Houston attorney who served a short term as Jack Ruby's chief defense counsel, will take over in directing the] appeal to Ihe Ktalc Court of Criminal Appeals.
