The California Supreme Court on Thursday indefinitely postponed a preliminary hearing for two brothers facing murder charges in the shotgun slayings of their multimillionaire parents in Beverly Hills. The justices ruled that the hearing will not be conducted until the court has decided whether Lyle and Erik Menendez's alleged confessions, tape-recorded by their psychologist, are admissible evidence against them.

The chief prosecution witness in the murder trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez is "a snake, a back-stabber, a liar" and makes slain cult leader David Koresh "look like a saint," a defense witness said Wednesday. Resuming their attack on the credibility of Beverly Hills psychologist L. Jerome Oziel, defense lawyers summoned a secretary at a business Oziel with which was once involved and asked--in a hearing without jurors present--whether he was an honest man.

Prosecutors on Tuesday displayed a series of graphic autopsy photos for jurors in the murder trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez that appeared to reduce the brothers to tears. The color pictures show that their father, Jose Menendez, was hit six times and their mother, Kitty Menendez, 10 times with shotgun blasts. Jose Menendez suffered a fatal shot to the back of his head, a coroner's deputy testified as prosecutors posted a picture of the wound.

ON A MILD SUNDAY last summer, a string of "popping sounds" drifted through the lazy night air of Beverly Hills around 10 o'clock. "I didn't think anything of it," said Tom Zlotow, a neighbor who soon learned that the noises he'd heard from the house right behind his were echoes of the most sensational crime in the history of Beverly Hills. "I didn't even think it could be gunfire, especially around here."

Alarmed by Erik and Lyle Menendez's admissions that they had killed their parents, Beverly Hills psychologist L. Jerome Oziel quickly sought advice from colleagues and lawyers, told his wife and children to move to a neighbor's and sought solace for himself--with his lover. Within hours after hearing the brothers confess, Oziel testified Thursday, he told his wife he believed she and their family were in danger.

Last year is dwindling in the rear-view mirror, tumbling down the memory hole, shuffling off to the Valhalla of Used Eras to await the whimsical verdict of the nostalgia gods. A serious year in many respects, a time when San Fernando Valley residents were left dazed by streaks of crime, felt the heat of a catastrophic fire, and elected their guy mayor of Los Angeles.

With one of the two juries in the Menendez brothers murder trial listening again to snatches of testimony, another day passed without a verdict. Lyle Menendez's jury, in a 10th day of deliberations, requested the rereading of testimony about his hairpiece and about the origins of a tape-recorded session between the brothers and their Beverly Hills psychologist, L. Jerome Oziel, on Dec. 11, 1989.

Erik Menendez's jury was read back testimony Friday about his "confused" sexual orientation, an issue that emerged late in the Menendez brothers' murder trial as prosecutors suggested that it might provide a motive to kill. The jury, in its 15th day of deliberations, sent a note asking to hear "all testimony about or allusions to Erik's homosexuality."

For almost two weeks, jurors in the retrial of the Menendez brothers have been focusing on the bloody details of parricide, replayed shot by shot and larger than life. It has been grim work. They have heard the chilling, metallic clicks of a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun similar to the alleged murder weapons; they have seen the blood-encrusted polo shirt Jose Menendez wore when he died. And countless autopsy photos have been projected on a courtroom screen.
