COUNTY SHERIFF DOUGLAS HARVEY escorts accused murderer John Norman Collins from the
Sheriff's van into the County Bldg. Collins faced a pre-trial examination yesterday after which he
was ordered to stand trial for the murder of Karen Sue Beineman.

John Collins, accused murderer of Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity coed Karen Beineman, yesterday was ordered to face
trial on charges of premeditated murder.
Ypsilanti District Judge Edward Deake ruled at Collins'
preliminary examination that County Prosecutor William
Delhey had shown "probable cause"" that the crime had been
committed and that there is reason to believe Collins may be
the murderer.
Deake bound Collins over to Circuit Court to face the
murder charges. Collins will be arraigned in Circuit Court
Sept. 5.
Delhey called nine witnesses to testify yesterday and
introduced evidence on which
he had earlier refused to corh-
ment after news media dis-
covered some of it.
Diana Joan Goshe, the owner of ,.
the wig shop Wigs by Joan, ident-
ifed Collins in court yesterday as °
the man from whom she saw
Beineman accept a motorcycle 4
ride after leaving the wig shop.
This was the last time Beineman
was seen alive.
The witness said while Beine-
man was in the wig shop July 23,
she (Goshe) went outside twice to
look at the motorcyclist. Goshe
said she was as close as 15 feet
from Collins one of the times she
observed him.
During cross examination Col-
lins' court - appointed attorney
Richard Ryan asked Goshe why

Goshe stated to answer, "Because of that statement she made ,
