A key witness who said she helped David A. Dicus dump his wife's body after he strangled her began what is expected to be at least two days of testimony yesterday, most of it contentious, as the defense tries to portray her as an unstable psychiatric patient who chronically lies.On the witness stand yesterday, Catherine S. McNicholas, 41, described nightmarish events of the early morning hours of July 29, 1995, saying she lied for three years about her involvement, because she feared that Dicus would do to her and her children what he did to his wife, Terry Lee Keefer.

The sorrow of two families overwhelmed an Anne Arundel County courtroom yesterday as a Glen Burnie man was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1995 death of his wife.Circuit Judge Ronald A. Silkworth said that while "a few pieces of the puzzle may be missing," he was convinced that David A. Dicus, 41, had strangled his wife, Terry L. Keefer.The Dicus and Keefer families cried and hugged as the judge explained his verdict, but it was Lucas Dicus -- the couple's 15-year-old son -- who weighed on the minds of many in the courtroom, including police officers who arrested his father last year.

Staring straight ahead at the judge who will decide his fate, David A. Dicus listened intently as the state's attorney described him as a calculating killer who on a warm summer night nearly four years ago strangled his wife and dumped her body in a field.Dicus showed little emotion during the 3 1/2 hours of closing arguments yesterday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. With his long hair cut for the trial, Dicus briefly smiled at his 15-year-old son, Lucas, who was sitting behind him fidgeting and scribbling into a spiral notebook.

A three-year investigation that began when the strangled body of Terry Lee Keefer was found in the woods near a utility pole resulted yesterday in the arrest of her husband, David Allen Dicus.Their 14-year-old son, Lucas Dicus, watched as his father was led from their Glen Burnie basement apartment, charged with first- and second-degree murder in the killing of Keefer in July 1995."The police pulled a circus act this morning. Dicus hasn't run and is not guilty of killing his wife," said Gil Cochran, an Annapolis lawyer representing Dicus.

David A. Dicus hopes his wife of 12 years is not in her right mind."I'm hoping that she's holed up somewhere and hasn't contacted us because she's not herself or doesn't want to," said Mr. Dicus, whose wife, Terry Lee Keefer, has not been seen or heard from since the night of July 28. "My best hope is that she's alive and well and that somebody's taking care of her."On Friday, Mr. Dicus, 37, stood near the Crown gas station at Old Mill Road and Veterans Highway, where a sign with the 37-year-old Ms. Keefer's picture on it greeted motorists.
