New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 13, 1982, New Braunfels, Texas 6A New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Wednesday, October 13, 1982 One of two witnesses identifies Harrelson SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Two women testified they saw a man lurking nearby shortly before U.S. District Judge John H. Wood Jr. was assassinated, but only one said she could positively identify the '‘suspicious man” as convicted hitman Charles V. Harrelson'. Both witnesses were residents of the Chateaux DiJon Townhouses, where the 63-year-old Wood was shot in the back in what prosecutors charge was a $250,000 contract killing. Harrelson is accused of {iring the shot from the high-powered rifle that killed Wood. Attorney Chrys Lambros earlier picked Harrelson, 44, out of a lineup as the man she literally bumped into about 40 minutes before Wood was slain on May 29,1979. “I will never forget Mr. Harrelson’s eyes,” she said shortly before leaving the witness stand Tuesday. "The face of the man I saw the morning of the shooting made such an impact on me, I will never forget it.”    * But the other witness, Mary Wilkinson, chose a Houston policeman from the same lineup as the man most closely resembling the man she spotted skulking in the parking lot the day of the murder. She picked Harrelson’s picture from a five-photograph display shown her by FBI agents in November 1980 as “the one that most nearly looked like the person I saw.” The government today was to call its eighth witness as it continued to build a case against Harrelson, his wife — 41-year-old Jo Ann Starr Harrelson — and Elizabeth Chagra, 28. Mrs. Chagra is the wife of 39-year-old Jamiel “Jimmy” Chagra. an El Paso drug trafficker charged with paying Harrelson to shoot Wood. Chagra will be tried for murder separately later. Prosecutors say he hired Harrelson to kill Wood to prevent the tough judge from presiding at Chagra’s 1979 narcotics trial. Miss Lambros, 28, and Miss Wilkinson, the middle-aged manager of the townhome complex, both used a pointer and a scale model of the parking area Tuesday to show jurors where they saw a suspicious man skulking. Miss Lambros underwent hypnosis at the FBI office here two weeks after the murder and gave a detailed description of the dress and face of the man. She identified Harrelson from an FBI picture display on Nov. 6,1980 and then from a Nov. 20,1980, police lineup in Houston. In a dramatic courtroom scene Monday, she confronted Harrelson and told jurors he was the man she saw the morning of the murder. Miss Wilkinson demurred Tuesday when Harrelson’s attorney — Tom Sharpe Jr. — asked whether she could say the man she saw was in the courtroom. She also answered “no” when prosecutor Ray Jahn asked whether she could definitely say definitely the man was not in the courtroom. But despite nearly a day of interrogation by Sharpe and attorney Charles Campion, representing Mrs. Harrelson, Miss I^ambros adamantly stuck with her identification of Harrelson. Sharpe told jurors in his opening statement he would show the Harrelsons were 300 miles away in Dallas when a news bulletin about Wood's assassination interrupted the television program they were viewing. The defense attorney told the jury he would name the “real killer” during the trial, expected to last up to eight weeks. He began laying the groundwork for his defense Tuesday by posing questions about suspicious automobiles and two men in white overalls allegedly seen near the murder scene. Victim's son says mother deserved life FORT WORTH (AP) - The teen-age son of Fort Worth gynecologist Darwin Fielder says his stepmother, sentenced to two years in prison, should have been incarcerated for life for the slaying of his father. Pamela Fielder was given the minimum prison sentence Tuesday for her voluntary manslaughter conviction after a jury deliberated the punishment for almost eight hours over two days. The 37-year-old woman had contended Fielder’s strange, sometimes violent, sexual behavior led her in 1981 to shoot him to death in self-defense. Drew Fielder, the doctor s 17-year-old son by a previous marriage, called the sentence “unfair.” • She not only killed my dad. she told a bunch of lies about him,” he said. She killed him. She should have gotten life.” Mrs. Fielder could have been sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison or up to IO years’ probation She was charged with murder, but was convicted of the .•--*.t charge Sunday after the jury met four hours. She stood motionless and ex-orc.v- miess as the sentence was read about ll 30a.rn Tuesday. T>efense attorney Don Gandy -aid the sentence would be ap-p a:-d. and prosecutors indicated Mrs Fielder would be released on t • i pending an appeal or motion fur a new trial. We do have avenues available t»» us.    added lead defense at- t rney Richard ‘ Racehorse” Haynes of Houston. He had asked that she be given only a probated sentence. Prosecutor Mike Worley said he w as pleased. That s justice and that s what we’re here for,” Worley said. 'Boll weevil' mulls switch to GOP WICHITA FALLS (API Rep. Phil Gramm of Texas, who critics contend is a Republican in Democratic clothing, says he will consider switching to the GOP next year or returning to Texas A&M University if ousted from his House Budget Committee seat. “If I were denied my committee assignment, it would be a very serious provocation,” he said Tuesday during a visit here. “If and when that ever happens ... I would have to look at all my options." Those options would include “serving out the two years and going back to Texas A&M. or switching parties.” he said. Gramm, who has voted consistently against the Democratic leadership and in favor of Republican-backed budget and tax alternatives on the House floor, is one of the leading conservative “Boll Weevils" in the House. The College Station Democrat helped draft the socalled Gramm-Latta” budget proposals in 1981 that helped President Reagan overcome Democratic opposition and put in place his economic program of domestic spending cuts, a military buildup and tax cuts. In Washington. Rep. William Brodhead. D-Mich., told a group of businessmen that Gramm certainly will not be elected” to his seat on the Budget Committee when Democrats meet in December to decide on committee assignments for the new Congress. Brodhead also told a session arranged by the National Association of Manufacturers that Gramm’s “opportunity for Slaves ?, Political prisoners may be pipeline workers LONI HJN i API Several West European governments are investigating charges by two human rights groups that the Soviet Union is using thousands of political prisoners as slave laborers to build the Siberian gas pipeline. But the governments, which have a large stake in the pipeline and oppose President Reagan’s sanctions against it, say they have not confirmed the charges. The United States opposes the project for commercial and political reasons and has tried to delay or halt it by preventing European firms from using advancement” was limited in the Democratic Party. “I would expect that within a year or two you would see him become a Republican,” Brodhead said. Gramm, a 40-year-old former professor of economics at Texas A&M, is a two-term veteran of both the House and the Budget Committee. He has no Republican opponent in the fall elections. Gramm has come under heavy criticism from mainstream Democrats during the past two years. Several Democrats have suggested that he and others be disciplined for resisting the party leadership’s discipline on key votes. But so far, no action has been taken, and Gramm said other conservative Democrats would “find that objectionable." “It’s hard to argue that I haven’t been an effective member" of the committee, Gramm said. But one key House Democratic aide said a separate vote is likely in the House Democratic caucus on whether to grant Gramm’s request to retain his committee seat. “I expect there will be an attempt to take him off,” said the aide, who asked not to be identified by name. “I can’t imagine that he will go unchallenged. There’s likely to be a separate vote on him.” All Democrats win their committee assignments by a decision of the party’s Steering and Policy Committee, subject to a ratification of the full caucus, which is composed of all Democratic members. U.S. technology in fulfilling pipeline contracts. Britain, France. West Germany and Italy have condemned the U.S. embargo. The London-based human rights organization Amnesty International said it had received no information to suggest any prisoners known to it are working on the pipeline. But two other European human rights groups will hold a hearing next month to air their charges that forced labor or slave labor is used on the 3,600-mile pipeline designed to bring natural gas to Western Europe by 1984. Myrdal, Robles win Peace Prize OSLO, Norway (AP) — Alva Myrdal of Sweden and Alfonso Garzia Robles of Mexico today were jointly awarded the 1982 Nobel Peace Prize. They were among a record 79 candidates — 60 individuals and 19 organizations — nominated for the prize, which carries a stipend of 1.15 million .Swedish kronor, equivalent to $157,000. Other candidates included detained Polish labor leader Lech Walesa. U.S. Mideast mediator Philip C. Habib, black South African bishop Desmond Tutu and jailed Soviet human rights activist Yuri Orlov. In the previous five years, the award went to Argentine human rights advocate Adolfo Perez Esquivel; Mother Teresa of Calcutta, India; Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin; the human-rights organization Amnesty International, and Northern Ireland peace activists Mairead Corrigan and Betty Williams.
