Security tight in retrial of Arizona murder case
Tucson, Ariz. — Tight security measures are in effect for the retrial of John Harvey Adamson, charged in the 1976 bombing death of reporter Don Bolles. First-degree-murder charges were reinstated when Mr. Adamson broke a plea-bargaining agreement by refusing to testify in a retrial the Arizona Supreme Court ordered for two men. Adamson was a key state witness at a superior court trial of Max Dunlap and james Robison, who were convicted of first-degree murder in the Bolles case. The convictions were overturned because the court determined their right to a fair trial was denied by Adamson's refusal to respond to defense cross-examination.
