An Alabama jury Monday ordered General Motors Corp. to pay a record $150 million in damages to a paralyzed man who alleged that a door latch on his Chevrolet S-10 Blazer failed in a crash, allowing him to be thrown from the vehicle, lawyers said. The verdict is the largest ever against an auto maker, eclipsing a $125-million jury award against Ford Motor Co. in the early 1980s for design defects in the Pinto.

Four years ago, the body of Jean Ellen Eubanks was discovered buried in a crude grave beneath a thin layer of rocks in Matilija Canyon near Ojai. Detectives suspected from the beginning that the 34-year-old mother of three was shot to death by her traveling companion, who had promised to show her Southern California. But the man, a suspected interstate drug smuggler, disappeared, and the investigation stalled until he surfaced in Utah in 1988, arrested on suspicion of selling cocaine.
