Kelly sane,
tells jurors

LEO KELLY is escorted from the courthouse yesterday after testimony was
given regarding his mental state.
Battles continue
in chaotic Beirut

Leo Kelly was not mentally ill at the
time of the April 17, 1981 Bursley mur-.
ders he is accused with committing, a
forensic psychologist testified yester-
Harley Stock, a clinical psychologist
from the State Center for Forensic
Psychiatry in Ypsilanti, told jurors
yesterday that based on his own
examinations of Kelly and the results
of other forensic center tests, "there
was no evidence that the defendant met
the statutory requirements for mental
illness at the time of the crime."
KELLY, WHO is accused of the
shooting deaths of Douglas
McGreaham, 21, and Edward Siwik, 19,
is pleading not guilty by reason of in-
sanity to the two charges of murder.
Stock said Kelly was resigned to
academic failure and wanted "to get
out of the University or get out of life."
"I got the impression that he (Kelly)
felt he wasn't going to make it through
the term, that he would flunk out,"
Stock said. "I think he wanted to go out

for himself one way or another."
STOCK, describing Kelly as "slightly
above average in intelligence, im-
mature, impulsive, explosive and a
manic depressive," said he showed
signs of personality disorder, but was
not mentally ill.
Stock also testified that he did not
believe Kelly's self-proclaimed loss of
memory concerning events surroun-
ding the shootings. "The amnesia he's
talking about is convenient amnesia,"
Stock said. "It starts when he wants it
to and ends when he wants it to."
"In my clinical opinion, Mr. Kelly
was not telling me the truth about the
amnesia and I think he could recall
more than he said he could," Stock
DEFENSE attorney William Water-
man, who had rested his case earlier
during yesterday's proceedings, asked
in cross-examination if someone could
form a "mental block" about a
traumatic experience. "It is possible,"
Stock replied, "but I don't think it hap-

DETROIT (AP) - A disgruntled client
opened fire with a sawed-off shotgun in
his attorney's eighth-floor office
yesterday after he was refused an in-
surance check, then set off a firebomb
next door. Police said a woman was
slain, four people were wounded by
gunshots and 34 were injured in the fire.
At least two of those injured fell from
window ledges where they and others
took refuge to escape the gunman and
smoke from the blaze, which burned for
about an hour after it was started
around noon.
The gunman, Robert Harrington, 35,
had gone to the law offices to complain
that the firm had inadequately
represented him in a dispute over
money with an insurance company,

Israelitroops andtanks stormedashore
south of Beirut's international airport
yesterday,fighting a major battle with
Palestinian guerrillas only hours after
a cease-fire with Syria - but not the
PLO - went into effect.
Beirut's streets were filled last night
with burning piles of garbage and wan-
derring refugees. The streets echoed
with rattles of submachine-gun fire,
long bursts of anti-aircraft fire, and the
howl of Israeli jets still flying overhead.
ISRAEL'S defense chief said his
country has "no cease-fire with the
terrorists." A guerrilla leader
declared his fighters "are not concer-
ned by the cease-fire in any way."
The Israeli-Syrian standdown took
effect at noon (6 a.m. EDT yesterday,
just minutes after Israeli jets

devastated Palestinian guerrilla
headquarters in furious air and sea
bombardments of the Lebanese capital.
Lebanese authorities reported 199
people killed and 444 wounded in those
Despite the cease-fire, shellfire ex-
changes between the Israeli forces and
the guerrillas continued. The shelling
by the Israeli gun boats, cruising off the
once-elegant Lebanese beaches, was
the first time Israel's guns have aimed
