Emotion's are running high over the confirmation. The hearing was interupted by a man screaming Ashcrofts name. Committee chair Pat Leahey was forced to have the man removed.
For Ashcroft or against him ... passions are running high. Before the hearings, there WERE dueling rallies on Capitol Hill. One group, calling themselves "Americans for Ashcroft" rallied on one side... while a coalition of women's groups protested on the other.)

"The evidence in this case, 24 hrs in trunk of car, money and food this man was leaving town"
Prosecutors contend Carruth arranged the shooting death of his pregnant girlfriend Cherica Adams because he did not want to pay child support. They say Carruth was charmer who hid his dark side from almost everyone but hired 2 others to carry out his dirty work.

SOT: Gentry Caudill Prosector

"The target from the very beginning was that baby, he didnt want that baby coming into the world and getting in the way."
But defense attorney David Rudolf said the police wrongly settled on a theory. That Carruth arranged a contract hit on Adams. Instead..the defense says - they should have focused on self-incriminating statements by admitted triggerman and co-defendant Van Brett Watkins. Statements that would have cleared Carruth.

SOT: David Rudolf

""The police were looking for confirmation of their theory, not just information about what happened."
The prosecution countered with a chilling reminder of the day that Cherica Adams was murdered, a 911 call from the victim herself.
