OAKLAND, Calif. UP)-In a'
tightly guarded courtroom where
everyone entering was searched
for weapons, the prosecution
charged yesterday that Black
Panther leader Huey Newton kill-
ed a white policeman, John Frey,
with the officer's gun.
Assistant Dist. Atty. Lowell
Jensen said the 26-year-old or-
ganizer of the Negro militants,
grappled with and killed Frey

Frey then put him under arrest
on a misrepresentation citation.
Newton got out, walked toward a
patrol car, spun around with a
gun and started shooting, Jensen
But Newton's attorney, Charles
Garry, contended Newton had no
gun and fired none.
Garry also said Newton, who
was shot through the stomach
during the gun fight, was hand-
cuffed by police in the hospital
before being allowed medical
treatment; and that his hospital
bed was kicked by police who
called him "nigger" and "black
bastard" and threatened: "We're
going to get you."
Garry told the jury that the
Black Panthers incensed Oakland
police by taking action against
white brutality in the "West Oak-
land ghetto" and that "the cry be-
came in the police department:
'Get Huey Newton.'"
He said it would be brought out
that the 23-year-old Frey, in a
year and a half on the police
force, "built himself a name for
harassing and pushing around
black people in the ghetto."
