jj»AGE 12 PRESSREPUBLICAN GENERAL NEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20,1995 Baby cut from slain mother's womb found alive By BRIAN BERGSTEIN Associated Press Writer ADDISON, 111. (AP) - Three people were charged Sunday with killing a pregnant woman and two of her children, and slicing open the women's womb to remove her infant son, police said. The infant, named Elijah by relatives, was found with one of the suspects Friday, authorities said. The child was in good health at a hospital. Elijah was found hours after 28-year-old Deborah Evans and two of her children were found murdered. A fourth child, 19- month-old Jordan, was found unharmed, shaking in the a back bedroom of the slain woman's apartment. Police searching for Ms. Evans' 8-year-old son Joshua found his body about 12 hours later in an alley in May wood, about 10 miles to the east. All three had been stabbed, and Ms. Evans was also shot in the head. SHUTDOWN.. Continued from Page 1 to move forward without forcing unacceptable cuts ... on the American people.\ Senate Democratic Leader Thomas Daschle and the White House chief of staff, Leon Panet- ta, said the Democrats would be able to protect Medicare, Medic- aid, education, the environment and a tax credit for working poor families. Clinton said he would veto a seven-year budget that failed to provide protections in these areas. \It preserves all of our op- tions,\ Daschle, D-S.D., said of the agreement. If Clinton and Congress cannot resolve their deep differences in these areas, the government could again be shut down after Dec. 15. The agreement also provides that any eventual budget deal \shall adopt tax policies to help working families and stimulate economic growth.\ It came with a Republican balanced budget plan near final passage in the House. GOP of- ficials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that, vote would likely come in the next day or two. But with President Clinton certain to veto it, the measure wasn't likely to go to the White House before Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, Clinton signed two women y SWEATERS EXTENDED COVERAGE By Mark Chandler After an auto accident, even a little fender bender, there are important steps to take to pro- tect yourself and your insurer. Most important, of course, is to ascertain that no one is injured. Get name, address, license number and appropriate insurance information from other drivers involved in the accident and from any passen- gers in the car or cars. If there are witnesses to the accident, get their names and addresses too. Make notes for yourself about the accident while the infor- mation is fresh in your mind. Note speeds, road conditions, skid marks and such. Photo- graph the scene and damage if you can. Report the accident\ to the police and ask if an officer will come to the scene (they may show up unasked). In most areas, you are required to file a police report. Do not discuss insurance limits or blame. Do notify your insurance agent promptly. Accidents are less frightening when you've got a good insur- ance agent on your side.

The suspects were charged with murder and kidnapping. A prosecutor said authorities be- lieved the killings, were planned, and that there appeared to be no relationship to drugs or devil worship. Police refused to discuss a motive. In custody Sunday were 24- year-old Laverne Ward, who they believe to be Jordan's father; Jacqueline Annette Williams, 28, and Fidell Caffey, 22. Elijah was found with Ms. Williams. On Sunday, a memorial of ted- dy bears, cards, footballs and basketballs was propped up out- side the family's apartment com- plex. A family friend, Earl Nix, added a fishing rod because he had planned to take Joshua fishing next summer. \Me and Josh were always talking about fishing together,\ he said. DuPage County State's At- torney Anthony Peccarelli said the killings were not random or connected to drugs. \It was more than domestic, appropriations bills, one funding Congress and the other the White House, Treasury Depart- ment and Postal Service. Seven of the 13 appropriations bills for the fiscal year that began Oct. 1 remain to be signed. One on Clinton's desk, funding the Defense Department, is ex- pected to be vetoed. The breakthrough on the tem- porary measure came during the Senate's first Sunday session in five years and only the 17th since the founding of the republic. Earlier in the day, Gingrich suggested if the impasse wasn't resolved, Republicans would deal with conservative Democrats di- rectly and bypass the White House. \The fact is the liberal lead- ership is losing control of their party,\ Gingrich said on ABC's \This Week With David Brinkley.\ \I think we could eas- ily, in another day or two, poten- tially have the votes to override the president.\ National parks, including the Grand Canyon, have turned away tourists, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has stopped tracking flu cases and Smithsonian museums have locked their doors.

Here's a woman who's home with her children, and somebody comes into the home; there apparently is no forced entry,\ he said. \Various strong leads have de- veloped which have provided us direction to identify the perpetrators,\ a police statement Saturday said without elabora- tion. Various reports said police were questioning two men. WBBM Radio in Chicago reported Sunday that Ms. Williams was a cousin of an ex- boyfriend of Ms. Evans; a woman identifying herself as the ex- boyfriend's mother confirmed, that report outside the police sta- tion but refused to give her name. Ms. Evans' live-in boyfriend, James Edwards, found the bodies when he returned home from work on the night shift, police said. Edwards was held Saturday on outstanding warrants but DOCTOR...

Holmes agreed. \This is a very important lease because of the number of retirees in the area that are now without access to hospital care.\ The clinic already has about 1,500 interested clients and can handle a total of 3,000, but the AP Photo AP Photo: Joshua Evans Deborah Evans Samantha Evans police would not say Sunday if he remained in custody.

He is looking for an internist so that the practice can handle more cases, involving a wider spectrum of ailments. The clinic's establishment also fits into the future plans for the base's retirement village. \It's compatible with what we see as the best and most ap- propriate use of the facilities on base,\ said Al Flateau of PARC.
