Court assumes control of project Indianapolis up a a Federal judge at Indianapolis has assumed administrative control Over construction of the Delaware county Justice Center and jail at Muncie. . District judge Sarah Evans Barker ordered special master j. Lee Mcneely to take immediate control of the $18 million facility. Barker acted Friday after Mcneely told a hearing that the project had become mired in confusion and political interference.

Continued from Page one burned claimed it was Carrolls idea to go to the murder scene. One allegedly said he saw Carroll bum the barn with available combustible materials at the site and after it was lit went to Indiana 46 to watch it Burn according to the files. He also denied making any statements such As a Larry Biehl will never come Back the motive for searching for the gun was to turn it Over to authorities said Carroll adding he was afraid Biehl would not be convicted of the murder without the gun being discovered. At the time of his arrest in january Carroll was also charged with attempted obstruction of Justice a class d felony since the crime scene had been destroyed. Decatur county prosecutor William o. Smith moved to dismiss this charge because he had no evidence to prove Carroll intended to obstruct Justice. After the hearing Smith said a we were hoping the evidence would mature but it did no to at the time of Carrolls arrest there was probable cause that he intended to obstruct Justice but now Smith said he can not prove that beyond a reasonable doubt which is what it would take before a jury could find him guilty. Since the property value of the barn was less than $250 and did not result in bodily injury Carroll could not be charged with arson. Smith said the most he could be charged with was the crime to which he pleaded guilty. Before Westhafer issued the sentence Carrolls attorney Jim Pruitt requested a suspended sentence because he has been incarcerated since Jan. 16 and has proved himself to be a Good prisoner by not causing any problems. Smith requested the maximum sentence. A work continued from Page one advertised extensively in the new papers and on the radio.
