Two men armed with a razor slashed the face of a 25-year-old model today in an attack arranged by the woman's landlord over $850 he owed her, police said. Marla Hanson of Dallas was hospitalized in stable condition with more than 100 stitches in her face, St. Vincent's Hospital spokeswoman Caroline McBride said. "She is conscious," McBride said. "She has a slash wound on her right cheek and cuts above and below her left eye."

A jury in New York awarded model Marla Hanson, 26, more than $78 million in damages against three men convicted in the slashing of her face with razor blades. Hanson's lawyer, Michael Shannon, acknowledges that the three imprisoned defendants--Steven Roth, 28, Steven Bowman, 27, and Darren Norman, 21--are broke. However, Shannon said, the judgment is in effect for 20 years, and if any of them come into money, it will belong to her.

A jury Saturday convicted a makeup artist of assault for hiring two men who slashed a model's face with a razor blade, leaving disfiguring wounds that took more than 100 stitches to close. Steven Roth was found guilty in the June 5 attack on Marla Hanson, which prosecutors said he arranged in anger over her demands that he return a rent deposit and her rejection of his sexual advances. Roth, 28, faces up to 15 years in prison when Justice Jeffrey Atlas sentences him on Jan.
