A giggly 12-year-old schoolgirl silenced a courtroom Monday when she smiled and insisted that she doesn't hate anyone--not even the doctor who was high on drugs and alcohol when he caused a car crash that killed her parents and left her disfigured. Some of the Orange County Superior Court jurors appeared to blink back tears as Karie Minzey testified on the first day of a trial for Ronald Allen, who is accused of second-degree murder and other charges stemming from the July, 1993, tragedy.

Forrest Harper and his pals often hopped in a pickup truck and drove down rustic Ortega Highway to take in the scenery, sun and fresh air. "He was a nature lover and loved the area," Harper's father, Walt, said Thursday. "The last thing he told us was he wanted to go out there and watch the sun go down." Several hours after 20-year-old Forrest Harper spoke those words to his father, he and two companions were dead, victims of a traffic accident on Ortega Highway.
