UC Berkeley student Bradley Page said under cross-examination that he was "fairly certain" that he was at home writing a paper the night of Nov. 4, 1984, when his girlfriend was killed. Police contend that Page confessed killing Roberta (Bib) Lee of Cambridge, Mass., a fellow University of California student, and then burying her in the Oakland Hills.

Especially if you've been married for 23 years.

They arose early and got themselves all decked out: she in a midcalf dress of some soft beige, he in a jacket and tie--the first tie Scott Roston's roommate had ever seen him wear. Scott Roston and Karen Waltz raced to Las Vegas on Feb. 4 in his leased red Toyota two-seater and were wed in a $25 civil ceremony in a marriage commissioner's office enlivened by some blue and white artificial flowers. Then they raced back to Santa Monica.
