Rochelle Manning--a radical Jewish settler who was awaiting extradition to California for trial in the letter-bomb murder of a Manhattan Beach secretary--died Friday in an Israeli prison, a government spokesman said. Manning, 54, had fainted after morning prayers at the prison outside Tel Aviv. She lost consciousness and died 45 minutes later of an apparent heart attack, said Dubi Ben-Ami, a Prisons Authority spokesman. An autopsy is planned, as Manning did not have a known heart condition.

A federal prosecutor said Wednesday that onetime Jewish activist Robert Manning built a letter bomb that killed the secretary of a Manhattan Beach computer company 13 years ago and that the strongest evidence connecting him to the crime is his fingerprints on the bomb. But Manning's attorney said, "There is no motive, the evidence is flimsy . . . this is not a real case."

An Israeli couple was arrested Sunday in an 11-year-old murder in which a Manhattan Beach secretary was killed by a letter bomb. An Israeli Ministry of Justice spokeswoman, reached in Jerusalem late Sunday, said that American-born Israeli immigrants Robert and Rochelle Manning were in custody in the 1980 death of Patricia Wilkerson. The Mannings had been suspects in the 1985 bombing death in Orange County of Arab-American leader Alex M. Odeh. And early Sunday, the British news agency, Reuter, in a story from Jerusalem, reported that Israel Radio had announced that the couple had been arrested in the bombing at the entrance of the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee office in Santa Ana that killed Odeh, 41. But the Israeli Ministry of Justice spokeswoman, Etty Eshed, said there was "no connection at all" between the arrests and the Odeh case.
