tenured professors Loyal Gould, William Mc-
Corkle and Adrian Vaughan, according to the
The newspaper said that Baylor officials
also decided to present Professor Roger Van
Ommeren with a buyout option for the last

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN ANTONIO- The defense
grilled a Dallas detective Tuesday
about reports of a black man seen
running from the direction of ex-
minister Walker Railey's home the
night Railey's wife was attacked.
Railey's attorneys also zeroed
in on half a dozen other investiga
tive issues, including an unidenti
fied white van parked in the
neighborhood before the assault.
Even the defendant's younger
brother, Gary Railey, came under
Testifying on cross-examina

about 9:30 p.m. and said he was
running at a "high rate of speed."

Railey, 45, former pastor of the
6,000-member First United
Methodist Church of Dallas, says
he was researching a book at
Southern Methodist University at
the time his wife was attacked.
The state hopes to use mobile
phone records to prove Railey
was nowhere near the SMU cam
pus at the time he says he was in a
recorded telephone call.
Prosecutors allege the calls and
recordings were part of a counter
feit alibi and that Railey wanted
his wife out of the way so he
could continue his love affair with
Dallas psychologist Lucy Papillon.
State attorney Cecil Emerson
said Ms. Papillon probably will
testify Wednesday and no later

that investigators overlooked, ig

In a brittle confrontation, lead
defense lawyer Doug Mulder
questioned Det. McNear about the
jogger's story, the white van, a
suspicious brown foreign car,
threatening phone calls, finger
prints and several other topics.
He also brought up some notes
in which Peggy Railey mentioned
her husband's brother, Gary Rai
"She didn't like him, did she?"
"No, sir," McNear replied.
