Closing arguments begin in bid-rigging trial
Man goes on shooting spree
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Ulysses Gene Miller was known as a quiet guy. A former high school football player and former Marine, he got along well with people, his mother says.
But Sunday, the day before his 23rd birthday, Miller went into a violent rage. When the shooting stopped, Miller had killed two people, wounded three others and killed himself, police said.
At a suburban home where as many as IO people were relaxing on a Sunday evening, Miller burst inside and yelled that he was looking for a woman he claimed had infected him with AIDS, said police Sgt. Ray Torres.
“The story from witnesses at the scene, survivors, was Mr. Miller was making claims that he had contracted

AIDS from an individual, from this female he was searching for,” Tones said.
The woman had recently moved out of the house, Torres said, though some of her relatives still lived there and were among those shot by Miller.
By Monday afternoon it had not been determined whether Miller was infected with the AIDS virus. Tests were to be done in an autopsy.
Rebecca Ann Beard, Miller’s mother, said her son had worried he might be infected with the deadly virus after the woman in question told him she might be infected.
Ms. Beard said she thought her son was still awaiting his test results and didn’t know whether he had contracted the virus.
MCALLEN, Texas (AP) — Six government officials participated in a “scheme to defraud the citizens of Hidalgo County” by rigging county purchases for bribes, prosecutors contend.
“They chose to serve themselves rather than the people they had promised to serve,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Surovic said Monday during closing arguments of the federal bid-rigging trial of suspended Coun
ty Judge J. Edgar Ruiz and five others.
The officials are accused of conspiring to direct more than $1 million in business to companies represented by former county purchasing agent Ramiro Gonzalez.
Prosecutors contend they awarded contracts at inflated prices in exchange for more than $25,000 in cash and airlines tickets to Houston, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
