Although a mistrial has been declared in the Erik Menendez murder case and jury deliberations are continuing in the trial of his brother Lyle, both CBS and Fox are proceeding with projects based on the sensationalized Beverly Hills killings of their parents, Jose and Kitty Menendez. "It is incumbent on us to be very circumspect about what we say and where we put the emphasis," said Zev Braun, producer of a four-hour miniseries for CBS, targeted to air during the May ratings sweeps.

Sunday's story, "Radar's the Ticket," (Valley Briefing, Dec. 14) was misleading. Contrary to what the police officer in the story said and what the writer implied, speed does not cause more accidents.
