A jury recommended the death penalty Thursday for a woman who arranged her husband's murder to collect a $500,000 estate and then arranged the slaying of his killer. In asking the jury for the death penalty last week, prosecutor Jan Maurizi called Mary Ellen Samuels a greedy, manipulative "mastermind of two evil plots" in the slaying of "Lethal Weapon" cameraman Robert Samuels and the man paid to kill him, James Bernstein.

Mary Ellen Samuels denied in Van Nuys Superior Court on Monday that she hired a hit man to kill her husband, then another to kill the executioner. She also denied that she had openly searched for hired killers in bars. But during her first full day of testifying in her own defense at her double murder-solicitation trial, Samuels admitted turning to a friend in a bar and complaining about her husband, whom she branded a child molester. She recalled saying that she wished he were dead.

A new state law, which takes effect Jan. 1, was sought by prosecutors and signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this week. The law applies only to those who voluntarily return to the United States. Forty-four other states have similar laws, prosecutors said.

The state attorney general on Monday once again opposed taking over the Bryant Family murder case, a change that defense lawyers want because of alleged conflicts of interest in the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. State prosecutors had made it clear in the past that they did not want to take over the case, in which five members of the alleged San Fernando Valley crime syndicate are charged with murdering four people in Lake View Terrace in 1988.

* In the Oct. 20 edition of The Times, the imposition of the death penalty for three Bryant Family members was reported ("3 Bryant Family Members Given Death Sentences"). Accusations made by defense attorneys regarding a deputy district attorney's conduct in the case were reported in the story. What was not made clear in the story is that on March 4, 1993, the appellate court issued a 31-page opinion finding the accusations made by defense attorneys to be "not supported in the record."
