On the morning of Aug. 18, 1983, the bodies of two attractive, well-dressed elementary schoolteachers, Rod and Marilyn Carlson, both 37, were discovered alongside a dirt road on the plains east of Denver. They were lying side by side, face down in the weeds, a foot apart. Each had been shot once in the back of the head, at close range, execution style. No signs of a scuffle, any resistance.

A Denver murder suspect at the center of a controversy over multiple-personality disorder has died of complications from leukemia. Ross Carlson's leukemia was diagnosed just three weeks ago, the day after a state judge ruled him competent to stand trial for the 1983 slayings of his parents. Carlson, who died Thursday, had spent six years in the state mental hospital as the courts and doctors argued over whether he had multiple personalities or whether he was faking the disorder to avoid trial.

A judge has ruled that Ross Carlson, 25, who claims he suffers from multiple personality disorder, is competent to stand trial in the 1983 execution-style shooting of his parents. For six years defense doctors have testified that Carlson has as many as eight separate personalities; doctors for the state have accused him of faking. Meanwhile, Carlson has been hospitalized at University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver, diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
