Aleene MacMinn, a former television editor of the Los Angeles Times, died Sunday of an apparent stroke at her home in Glendale, family members said. She was 75. MacMinn joined The Times as a reporter in 1953, when there were relatively few women in the business. The first day she arrived at work, she doubled the number of female reporters on the Times staff to two. After four years of reporting, she was named assistant editor of what was then the Family section.

Two days before Paul R. Hangen was shot to death, he was in good spirits and "didn't appear to have a worry in the world," the victim's brother said Monday. "I saw him last Wednesday night, and nothing seemed wrong," Tim Hangen said. "His only plans for the immediate future was to trade in his Chevy S-10 pickup for a full-sized pickup.
