Leona and Harry Helmsley emerged from a silver stretch limousine under slate-gray skies a little more than a week ago to be fingerprinted, photographed, booked and arraigned among drug dealers and thieves in the Manhattan criminal courthouse. Clad in a fire-truck-red coat-dress with blue velvet lapels, Leona Helmsley held her head high, linked arms with her husband and smiled at the mass of reporters outside the courthouse. Asked for comment, they replied only, "Good morning."

Leona Helmsley, the imperious Manhattan hotel magnate who was derided as "the Queen of Mean" in the late 1980s when she was on trial for income tax evasion and was deemed the woman New Yorkers most loved to hate, died Monday at her summer home in Greenwich, Conn. She was 87. Helmsley, whose $2.5-billion personal fortune last year had her tied as No. 117 on the Forbes list of 400 richest Americans, died of heart failure, said her publicist, Howard Rubenstein.
