Barnabei was convicted in Norfolk of raping and killing his girlfriend 17-year-old Old Dominion University student Sarah Wisnosky from Lynchburg. Barnabei claims he's innocent and that new D-N-A tests ordered by Governor Gilmore are based on tainted evidence that disappeared and then reappeared two weeks ago.

Duke Energy has offered the following three options. [PRE-PRO]
Virginia Gas can share a pipeline with East Tennessee's existing one.
The lines can run 50 feet apart, but Virginia Gas would have to pay for any expansion.

'Mrs.Clinton, you of all people, shouldn't' make guilt by association. Newt Gingrich isn't runing in this race...I'm running in this race'
On the trust issue, Mrs. clinton was asked whether she should have appologized to the American people for misleading them regarding her husband's affair with a White House intern. She once blamed it on a right wing conspiracy.

"I tried to be as forthcoming as I could given the circumstances that I faced. Obviously I didn't mislead anyone. I didn't know the truth'.
