"She felt like she was violated, just one step short of rape," the woman's brother-in-law, Craig Wilson of Diamond Bar, said Thursday. Vickie Ann Wheeler and Dale J. Wheeler, both 43, went to the Saddleback clinic on Oct. 5, 1992, to seek in-vitro fertilization therapy with Dr. Jane L.

Jackie Joyner surpassed the American record in the women's heptathlon Friday, totaling 6,910 points to win the two-day competition at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays, but it's unlikely her mark will be allowed because the 100-meter hurdles had to be hand-timed. Joyner, 24, a former UCLA star representing the World Class Athletic Club, topped the record of 6,803 points set by Jane Frederick in 1984. On Thursday, the first day of the seven-event competition, Joyner had marks of 12.
