MINNEAPOLIS -- In a flurry of legal motions filed late yesterday, attorneys in the murder-for-hire case against Qubilah Shabazz profiled an indecisive woman who talked bluntly about murder, then backed out of an alleged plot just weeks before she was indicted on charges of conspiring to kill Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.The release of transcripts from FBI wiretaps and a purported confession from Ms. Shabazz, 34, the second eldest daughter of Malcolm X, provided the first inner details of a case that has flared into renewed controversy over the government's reliance on criminal informants.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A sigh of relief went up in the black community following the settlement of the case against Qubilah Shabazz in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme.The deal, announced yesterday, keeps in place charges that Ms. Shabazz tried to arrange the murder of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.Suspicions linger, however, about the government's case against the 34-year-old daughter of slain civic rights leader Malcolm X, about whether she may have been entrapped and about the man with the shady past who was the government's star witness.

A friend who gets up even earlier than I do called yesterday morning, before I'd released the hounds or seen the morning paper. "The world has gone mad," he said. "Jeff Toohey gets 18 months for molesting children, and Philip Akbar Shabazz gets three years for overdue library books." Indeed, The Sun reported yesterday two stories - one stacked above the other across this very page - from the Baltimore County courts. In the Circuit Court, we had Judge John G. Turnbull suspending all but 18 months of a five-year sentence for Jerome F. "Father Jeff" Toohey, the former Roman Catholic priest and Calvert Hall chaplain, for sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy he was supposed to be counseling through family turmoil back in the 1980s.

NEW YORK -- In her mind, Ilyasah Shabazz's father is a montage of blurry black-and-white photographs and grainy newsreel. She did not know the man who some called a savior and some called a devil. She did not know the sound of his voice, the feel of his hair, the look of his hands. To find him for herself, she has to navigate through other people's memories. She must try to locate her family's truth in the shifting albums of history. Now Shabazz, who was 2 when her father, Malcolm X, was assassinated more than 37 years ago, is offering her stories to the world in an intimate look inside her family.

WASHINGTON -- When controversial Nation of Islam member Khallid Abdul Muhammad spoke at Howard University recently, he found his caustic brand of rhetoric upstaged by one of his proteges, a law student named Malik Zulu Shabazz.With reporters noting his words and a crowd of 1,000 loudly endorsing each thrust, Mr. Shabazz introduced Mr. Muhammad by accusing Jews of controlling the Federal Reserve and Hollywood and killing rebellious slave Nat Turner.Some compared the call-and-response diatribe against Jews with a Nazi hate rally.

The man charged with killing Baltimore police Officer Michael J. Cowdery Jr. in an ambush went on trial yesterday, with prosecutors portraying him as a "cold-blooded cop killer" and his lawyer contending that he was a victim of mistaken identity. Howard T. Whitworth is accused of gunning down Cowdery - who had been on the force for 4 1/2 years and was the son of a career Philadelphia police detective - while the officer and several of his colleagues were questioning two men outside a carryout restaurant in East Baltimore exactly one year ago. In his opening statement, Assistant State's Attorney Donald Giblin told the 12-member jury that on the night of the incident, Whitworth, 32, came out of nowhere and shot Cowdery, 31, in the leg. Everyone on the block scattered, Giblin said, but Whitworth walked over to Cowdery and shot him in the head as he lay disabled on the sidewalk.

IN BOWIE EARLIER this month, they crashed a "Unity Day" rally and scoffed at a pledge to reject bigotry. A few days later in Harlem, they protested Bill Clinton's plans to rent an office there and described the former president as a "cracker." Then, last weekend, the New Black Panthers climbed a stage in Cincinnati and found an even brighter spotlight. They eulogized the unarmed African-American teen-ager whose shooting death at the hands of police sparked days of rioting. When the service ended, they carried the casket from church to hearse, raising their clenched fists in the Black Power salute made famous in the turbulent 1960s.

NEW YORK -- When Malcolm Shabazz flew to San Antonio to rejoin his mother a few months ago, he and his family hoped it would be a new beginning for the boy, who had endured years of nomadic wanderings, then a two-year separation from his mother.But as Malcolm, the 12-year-old grandson of Malcolm X, was brought into Family Court in Yonkers yesterday, accused of setting a fire that has critically injured his grandmother, it seemed that he had found not stability but chaos.When he arrived in Texas around the beginning of the year, his mother, Qubilah Shabazz, was newly married to a man who the police said sometimes beat her. She abused alcohol, police said, and refused to drive the boy to school.

YONKERS, N.Y. -- Concluding the latest chapter in a tortuous saga of family suffering, Malcolm Shabazz, the 12-year-old grandson of Malcolm X, pleaded guilty yesterday to the juvenile equivalent of second-degree manslaughter for starting a fire that killed his grandmother, Betty Shabazz.Malcolm's lawyers, Percy Sutton and David N. Dinkins, the former New York City mayor, said after a hearing in Family Court that, in consultation with the boy and his mother, Qubilah Shabazz, they had decided to accept a plea bargain to avoid an intimate description of Malcolm's troubled childhood in open court.

BETTY SHABAZZ, the woman who saw her husband blasted into eternity and then inspired millions by carrying on with dignity and courage, was buried last week. All the accolades she received somehow don't seem adequate .Former New York City Mayor David Dinkins called Shabazz "an example of a person who met her adversity and transcended it." Dinkins' political rival, current New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, spoke at Shabazz's funeral."All 7 million New Yorkers share with you this sense of loss," wire stories reported Giuliani saying.
