Investigation Continues in Ark. Shooting
The Associated Press
University of Arkansas graduate student
found dead near an English professor in
an apparent murder-suicide had been
kicked out of a degree program last
week after a decade of lackluster work.
English professor John Locke, 67, and
James Easton Kelly, 36, were found
dead Monday, lying face-up on the floor
of Locke’s office. Both had been shot in
the abdomen, university police Capt.
Brad Bruns said.
The .38-caliber revolver, which Kelly
bought at a pawn shop five years ago,
was found between the men; investiga
tors worked Tuesday to find out who
shot whom.

Clinton: Disbarment Too Harsh, Unprecedented
The Associated Press
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - President
Clinton said Tuesday he should not be
disbarred over his testimony in the
Paula Jones sexual harassment case,
telling a state judge that losing his law
license is too harsh a penalty.
In a five-page response to a com
plaint filed by the Arkansas Supreme
Court Committee on Professional
Conduct, the president said that he
would not receive such a stiff sanction if
his case was handled like similar cases.
“On the basis of the relevant facts, the
governing law and the applicable deci
sions of the Arkansas courts ..., a sanc
tion of disbarment would be excessively
focusing on leadership skills and
women’s issues. Womentoring is open
only to first-year women

university police Lt. Gary Crain.
A panel of six professors voted Aug.
21 to dismiss Kelly from the English
department’s doctoral program because
he habitually dropped classes and made
insufficient progress in 10 years as a
graduate student. Locke, who was
Kelly’s faculty adviser, was on the com
mittee but abstained from the vote.
The committee allowed Kelly to con
tinue his studies as a non-degree student.
Professor Brian Wilkie recalled that
in the mid-1990s Kelly bombed on an
oral examination, stumbling through
answers and failing to show mastery of
required reading material.
“He didn’t take his work very seri
harsh, impermissibly punitive and
unprecedented in the circumstances of
this case,” Clinton’s lawyers wrote.
Pulaski County Circuit Judge Leon
Johnson said he expected to receive
Clinton’s filing Tuesday but otherwise
would not discuss the case, including
when it might be scheduled for a hear
ing or trial.

president lied about his relationship with

Lewinsky when asked about it, under
oath, in January 1998. Jones’ lawyers

Wilkie said Kelly had been dropped
from the program at least three times.
Each time, until last week, the faculty
had voted to reinstate him.
A woman enrolled in the school’s
graduate program in the 1990s said
Kelly’s performance was erratic.
“He wasn’t ever quite on the same
track as the rest of us as far as what he
was supposed to do for class and coming
to class,” said Angie Albright, an assis
tant professor of English at Georgia
Southwestern State. “He seemed nice
enough, but distant all the time.”

lawyers wrote.
