California hunters
sentenced to life
*after killing man

OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Two white
men who boasted that they killed a
black man because they failed to find
any animals to shoot on a hunting trip,
face possible life imprisonment after
pleading guilty to murder.
James McCarter, 20, and Marvin
Noor, 19, will be sentenced Feb. 27 after
pleading guilty Wednesday to the first-
degree murder of Jimmy Lee Cam-
pbell, 20.
CAMPBELL, A deaf man who'
worked in a sheltered workshop, was
walking along a railroad track Jan. 13,
1979, when he was hit in the shoulder
with a .30-caliber rifle bullet that
passed through his heart, authorities
McCarter and Noor were arrested the
next day, along with Noor's girlfriend,
Dani Lee Shope, 24. She pleaded guilty
second-degree murder in November
and drew a term of 15 years to life in
"If they had kept their mouths shut,
we never would have found them," said
District Attorney Will Matley. "But
they went home and bragged to friends

and neighbors. We got an anonymous
telephone call and arrested them."
"THEY ADMITTED all this after-
ward," Matley said.
Matley said there was "evidence
Noor had a dislike for blacks."
He said McCarter, who fired the fatal
shot, i'was actually the meekest of
them all.
THE POSSIBILITY of the death
penalty was eliminated in exchange for
the guilty pleas, which were negotiated
over the many months after the mur-
der, Matley said.
Matley said the two men and Miss
Shope had gone hunting for deer in the
Oroville area, about 150 miles northeast
of San Francisco, but were unable to
find any. Frustrated, they said they
decided to shoot a cow but could not find

going on, a whole lot," Matley said. He
said they talked about finding a black
person to kill and headed for nearby

State chief urges Dems.
to accept primary ruling

LANSING (UPI) - Michigan
Democratic 'chief Olivia Maynard
urged Senate Democrats yesterday not
to sue their party's national committee
over its rule prohibiting open
At a caucus meeting, Maynard asked
Ohe lawmakers to resign themselves to
selecting the state's 1980 Democratic
presidential favorite at party caucuses.
DEMOCRATIC National Committee
(DNC) rules prohibit open primaries
such as Michigan's on the grounds they
allow cross-over voting that distorts
election results.
An attempt by the legislature to bring
the state's primary into compliance
with national Democratic rules passed
n the Senate but stalled in the House.
As it now stands, Democrats will
choose their national convention

delegates at party caucuses starting
April 26. Republicans will select their
presidential favorite in a May 20 state
A DEMOCRATIC ballot will be
available in the May primary but
President Carter has opted out of the
election at the request of state
Democratic officials.
California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr.
has said he will enter the primary and
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) has
not yet made a decision.
Despite party leaders' pleas to accept
the caucuses, primary backers -
buoyed by the success of a similar suit
in Wisconsin - are proceeding with a
request that Attorney General Frank
Kelley sue the DNC to void the election
ban. The DNC is appealing the Wiscon-
sin Supreme Court decision.
