Drugs, sex and murder. That's what the jurors in the trial of Earl Bramblett have to look forward to... and that's after they hear all the evidence in the arson and capital case in the deaths of a Vinton family of four.
If a jury convicts Bramblett, the prosecutor intends to put on evidence of other crimes that have never been to court.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


Bramblett was once a suspect in the 1977 disappearance of two 14-year old girls. He was questioned but never formally accused of killing them.
In 1984, he WAS tried- -but found NOT guilty- -of sexually molesting the 10-year old sister of one of his employees.
The defense wants to keep those cases out. But if Bramlett is found guilty, those cases and others could come up in the penalty phase of his trial.

But the Air Force has said it is her denial of the affair to her superiors and her failure to follow a direct order to break it off that it is most concerned with.
