Hose was tried earlier this year on a charge of kidnapping Pierre Laporte, former Quebec labor minister, but the trial ended May 11 with a hung jury and a new trial was ordered. Rose also faces a charge of murder in connection with Mr Lnporte's deatli in October 1970. Defence lawyer Robert Le- mieux was not present for the proceedings. In a verbal motion Monday, Mr. Lcmieux said that "the judge should ask the Crown whelher il has any evidence to offer in the murder case and, if not, then Rose should be ac- quitted." Mr. Justice Barbes said in his ruling the defence motion was "not founded in fact and in law." Rose's second kidnap trial originally was to begin Sept. 25. However, the case is being ap- pealed and the Crown snys it intends to proceed with the murder trial only after the sec- 1 ond kidnap trial' has been com-1 pleted.
