The government has made a deal with a new witness in the case against Richard Burrow. Armed with this new information, the U-S Attorney says he intends to seek a new indictment against the former D-Day Memorial President.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Monday]

In court Monday, Burrow's lawyer sought to have the case dismissed for good. On Wednesday the judge gave the government 10 days to get the trial started, or face the prospect of having the indictment dismissed. But the court is now going to allow the government to RE-indict Burrow... probably sometime in the next 90 days. The 56-year old Memorial Foundation director was tried last December on fraud charges related to fund-raising for the Memorial. But that trial ended in a hung jury.

The awards show went on through the World War Two, and during the Korean and Vietnam wars.
The show was postponed during flooding in 1938, when Martin Luther King was assassinated and when President Reagan was shot.
It is possible that the Oscars show set for Sunday on ABC, could be preempted by war coverage.
