is accused 'af killing "had nothing to do" with her death, but the

from court records.
Dr. Sander is charged with the murder of Mrs. Abbie Borroto,
59. The state claims he killed the woman, who was suffering from
cancer, by administering four injections of air into her veins.
BUT TESTIMONY has been given that Sander acted upon the
insistence of Reginald Borroto, husband of the cancer-ridden woman

DEAN WALTER said that her
new book "is probably a fair pre-

Roman Catholics were Christian,
