A retired schoolteacher on Wednesday corroborated a dead colleague's videotaped statements linking a Minnesota man to the 1982 slaying of a Cal State Northridge administrator. During the trial of Jonathan Karl Lundh, former elementary school teacher Fanny Krivit's testimony contradicted the defense's contention that police had pressured her dead colleague, whose taped testimony is the core of the prosecution case.

More than a decade after a Cal State Northridge administrator was stabbed and strangled, a jury convicted a Minnesota man Friday of first-degree murder, concluding his second trial for the slaying. Jonathan K. Lundh, 45, is expected to receive a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole at a May 5 hearing because the jury also determined that he killed 40-year-old Patty Lynne Cohen during both a kidnaping and robbery.

A defense expert sought to cast doubt Friday on the testimony of five women who have linked a Minnesota man to the 1982 slaying of a Cal State Northridge administrator. Testifying in the trial of Jonathan Karl Lundh, Dr. Alfred Coodley found fault with the testimony of all five prosecution witnesses, saying that evidence suggests that police prodded or manipulated them into identifying the defendant.

A dead woman's videotaped testimony linking a Minnesota man to the 1982 slaying of a Cal State Northridge administrator was played to a Van Nuys jury Thursday after a judge rejected defense efforts to bar it. The accusations by elementary school teacher Rain Slook, who died in January, are the core of the prosecution's case against Jonathan Karl Lundh, who contends police pressured her to identify him in order to solve a highly publicized murder.

Relying heavily on the testimony of a dying prosecution witness, a judge on Thursday ordered a Minnesota man to stand trial in the slaying of a Cal State Northridge administrator nine years ago. Jonathan Karl Lundh, 39, was charged six months ago with the 1982 death in Burbank of Patty Lynne Cohen, 40, assistant to the dean of CSUN's School of Arts.

As the second trial of a Minnesota man charged with murder began Wednesday, jurors visited the Burbank hotel where the Cal State Northridge administrator he is accused of killing was last seen alive 11 years ago. Under the direction of Van Nuys Superior Court Judge John S. Fisher, jurors toured the Burbank Holiday Inn and its parking garage, where Patty Lynn Cohen, 40, was seen leaving a self-improvement seminar April 27, 1982.

A Minnesota man accused of the 1982 murder of a Cal State Northridge administrator urged jurors Tuesday to acquit him because prosecutors built their case by pressuring witnesses, yet still had no physical evidence linking him to the slaying. "No fingerprints. No blood. No hair," ties him to the strangulation, said Jonathan K. Lundh, who is representing himself in the Van Nuys Superior Court trial.

A Van Nuys judge declared a mistrial Monday after jurors reported they were deadlocked in the case of a Minnesota man accused of raping and murdering a Cal State Northridge administrator a decade ago. Shortly after jurors said they were split 7 to 2 for conviction, with three undecided, prosecutors said they almost certainly would retry Jonathan K. Lundh, 44, in the April 27, 1982, slaying.
