If he receives the maximum penalty for those crimes, he could be sentenced to 60 years in prison. Assistant State's Attorney Sheryl A. Atkins said through a spokeswoman that jurors, who were questioned after the verdict, said the state proved its felony murder case against Eason "to the letter of the law," but that they did not convict him because "he did not pull the trigger."

NEW YORK - His name may seem better suited to a hip-hop magazine than to a movie marquee, but Franky G. is no budding rap star. "The only thing I wrap are presents," he says. Franky G. is a film actor who embraced the initial years ago when he found that there were too many actors in the Screen Actors Guild named Gonzalez. He has no regrets. "They love it in Hollywood," he says. And they apparently love more than just the name. In less than a year, Franky G., who reluctantly revealed he is in his "late 30s," has gone from a no-name actor kicking around "off-off-Broadway," as he put it, to a promising new talent sharing screen time with big names in the movies.

As teachers at Ruth Parker Eason School in Millersville began eating lunch in a school workroom yesterday, a torrent of rain burst through the ceiling, soaking the carpet and their turkey club sandwiches. They screamed, jumped up and ran for empty trash cans to catch the waterfall. Meanwhile, Kenneth P. Lawson, associate superintendent of schools, was in a nearby classroom evaluating whether the school would be able to open Tuesday, its delayed opening date. Until the downpour, indications were that Ruth Parker Eason, a special education school, would open next week.
