- founded in St. Francis Foundation. JUDGE FROM PAGE 7A said he found her less depressed. The improvement has simply left her with "more energy to think about the reality of what has happened. "Her mood has lifted, and she's dealing more with the reality of the situation, and that has made her more suicidal," he testified. He said she has been taking the anti-depressant medication Prozac for the past six weeks. "She is very guilt-ridden, and she feels she deserves punishment; and her desire would be not to continue living in prison," he said. "If she were not in prison, she said she would take her life as rapidly as possible." In his report, Morgan said Smith had described out-of-body experiences in which she can see herself. "These experiences are limited to when she is having certain sexual relations," he wrote. Amid heavy security and a blanket of media, 147 men and women squeezed onto 18 courtroom benches to be questioned by Howard, as Smith, dressed in a dark blue suit and light blue blouse, looked on. After four hours, 105 potential jurors remained. Among them is the wife of the town's police chief, R.F. Roark. He said he and his wife have not discussed the case. Howard divided the 58 men and 47 women into nine panels, each which will be questioned more thoroughly through Friday. Dozens of television photographers and reporters outside the courthouse morning as Smith was brought through a side entrance with notice by the townspeople, few whom appeared as spectators. Security at the trial was with metal detectors, restricted cess to the courthouse and the presence of State Law Division agents, state troopers, ion police and state wildlife Sketch artists drew from courtroom's balcony, taking place of photographers and operators, who were banned the trial by Howard. 11 n U7;V1 fcl U.'iM :l MM i i : (I 8 M 5,000 '25,000 180 180 '143.35 '238.91 .00 8.00 8.16 8.16
