A man who killed a teenage girl seven years ago was executed by injection in Jarratt, Va., days after new DNA tests that were ordered by the governor confirmed his guilt. Derek R. Barnabei, 33, was convicted of raping and killing Sarah J. Wisnosky, a 17-year-old Old Dominion University freshman he had been dating. "I am truly innocent of this crime," Barnabei said. "Eventually, the truth will come out." His lawyer's claims of evidence tampering by the state are under investigation.

Richie Collins of Newport Beach, a World Tour veteran, captured the $22,000 Body Glove Fall Classic surfing contest Sunday at Seaside Reef in Cardiff. Collins, currently ranked fourth on the Bud Surf Tour, earned $4,000 as he outclassed the rest of the field on 5- to 6-foot waves. Shane Beschen, the current points leader with two contests remaining on the 1992 tour, was eliminated in his quarterfinal heat, while No. 2 Rob Machado of Cardiff pulled closer in points.

The list below shows the number of minutes it takes to get about 100 calories' worth of extra exercise. The figures are drawn from Kristine Clark, director of sports nutrition at Pennsylvania State University, and from Melvyn H. Williams, of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., author of "Nutrition for Health, Fitness and Sport" (WCB McGraw Hill, 1999). Williams' estimates are based on men and women of average height (5-foot-9 and 5-foot-4, respectively), each with a body mass index of 27.

The mutilated body of a nun was found in a parking lot here Wednesday, three days after she and another nun were abducted in Georgia by a man suspected of slaying his father, authorities said. The second nun was located in a motel Tuesday, shaken but unharmed, Norfolk police said. Adrian O'Neill Robinson, 25, was last seen early Wednesday when Norfolk police spotted him driving alone on a dead-end street in the nuns' car. He fled on foot into a marshy area and a search was underway.

It's hard to figure out what's so special about the Field House at Old Dominion University, and why the Lady Monarchs are practically unbeatable at home. The place seems no different from any decent-sized, high school gym. Its bleachers seat only about 4,800. The gym's entrance is adorned with framed, retired jerseys of former Old Dominion All-Americans Nancy Lieberman, Inge Nissen and Anne Donovan, but how intimidating are a few uniforms? Then, the fans start filing in.
