DiMascio for the 1982 murder of a young man whose body was tossed out of an airplane near Santa Catalina Island. The same court last year overturned the murder conviction of DiMascio's co-defendant, Lawrence R. Cowell, who is scheduled to face a new trial in the murder next month.

Gary and Collene Campbell sat grim-faced in court this week as they listened with jurors to the sound of their voices on their son's answering machine, the panic increasing with each day's unanswered calls.

Cowell, 38, is already serving a sentence of 25 years to life in prison in the killing of Scott Campbell.

DiMascio, who admitted killing a 27-year-old Anaheim man aboard an airplane, then tossing his body into the ocean beyond Santa Catalina Island in 1982, was spared the death penalty Tuesday when an Orange County jury returned a verdict of life without parole. Jurors later said it would be unfair to impose a death verdict on the 37-year-old ex-convict from El Monte when the pilot of the rented airplane, Lawrence R.
