UK student
pleads guilty
to murders

Associated Press

BALTIMORE — A University of Kentucky student has pleaded guilty
to reduced charges in the shooting deaths of his father and stepmother. af-
ter a tape he made detailing his involvement in the slayings was played in


Jayarit N. Katz, 21, pleaded guilty Friday to two counts each of second-
degree murder and use of a handgun in a violent crime.

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Vincent Ferretti .lr. set sentenc-

ing for April 27.

Katz shot Dr. Norman N.K. Katz, SO. and Dr. Michelle R. Filling-KaIZ.
36. on Aug. 11, 1991. at their home in Burtonsville, Md., a Washington


The couple were discovered by Norman Katz‘s former wife and his I7-
year-old son. who went to the house after Jayant Katz failed to appear at

his mother's Baltimore house.

Police detective James B. Drewery testified that a tape recording was
found in the elder Katz‘s car. which his son was driving when he was ar-
rested later the same day. Drewery said the son had driven around in the
rain composing poetry referring to how he had committed the slayings.

The tape was played by State‘s Attomey Bob Dean to establish Katz‘s


“I kind of looked at it in an artistic sense." Katz said on the tape, refer-
ring to the murders. “I am an artist. I enjoy making art. I guess ljust have

some problems."

Katz talked of how upset his mother and brother would be. He also said

he intended to kill himself.

After painstaking questioning by Ferretti. Katz said he understood he
was giving up his right to ajury trial. He then entered his guilty pleas.

Katz said he did not get along with his father and stepmother but moved
to Louisville. Ky.. in late 1989 where his father. Dr. Norman N. Katz. was
working at the University of Louisville Medical School. His father wanted

to “keep an eye on me." Kati said.

Katz later transferred to UK‘s architecture school. and his father stopped

paying for Jay to see a psychiatrist.

The father moved back to Maryland and began working as a pediatric
ophthalmologist in Waldorf. His wife worked in genetics at the National

Institutes of Health in Bethesda.

Kat! could be sentenced to five to 100 years in prison, his attonieys said.
He had been charged with first-degree premeditated murder and faced a
maximum sentence of life in prison without parole.

10 years later, Letterman still has best talk show

Occasionally, a comedian ap-
pears on the scene with a sense of
humor such that you think he or she
was created with you in mind. Tun-
ing in to a new morning talk show
in the summer of 1980, 1 found
such a person.

He was a former weatherman
frotn Indiana, I later found out. Uti-
like the other moming talk show
hosts of the time, who interviewed
hornernakers and gave cooking
detnonstrations, this guy was a little
different. A perennial “guest"
claimed to be a former FBI agent
with photographic “evidence“ that
placed Joe Garagiola at the scene of
every major intemational incident.
The host would pull out a mini-TV
iii the middle of the show to update
you on “The Price is Right." He
wanted to have a “(.‘ancellation
Sweepstakes“ in which viewers
could write iii and guess when the
show would leave the air. (The net-
work wouldn't let him do the lat-

It looked like a standard talk
show. but the whole show had a
warped, oddball sense of humor
that seemed out of place at 10 in the
moming. I loved it. Most early
tnoming viewers hated it. It was

just the wrong time slot.

So the morning show was a fail-
ure. lasting 18 weeks. In February
of I982. a retooled version of the
comedian‘s show premiered. But
this version wasn't on in the rnoni~
itig. Essentially, the same show was
put in the right place.

And “Late Night with David Let-

tIIII llll l II'IHII

terman“ was boni.

Ten years later. Letterman and
company can look back on their
program with the knowledge that
it‘s one of the funniest. tnost origi-
nal comedy programs ever broad-
casted. Its refusal to do things the
“normal" way made it seem like a
breath of fresh air in a usually
stale industry. Thursday. little in
and see the best of the show's first
10 years.

You can expect to see David Let-
termzui‘s leap onto the wall of vel-
cro. his parade of new gift items
(including, let‘s hope. the rabid dog
sliaving-cTeam dispenser. the lixxon
Valdez leaking gravy boat and the
tabletop dishwasher), some past ex-
amples of viewer mail, a few items
dropped from a six-story tower.
clips of lany “Bud" Meltnan and
possibly Chris Elliott and some of
the best guest stars of past years.

'l‘here's little point iii encourag-
ing you to watch the show. Most
Lettermaniacs just need to know

when and where it's on. Lettennan
haters wouldn't watch anyway. But
for the fan. the anniversary show is
a don't-miss program. The best of
Letterman makes for great televi-
sion. To me, these anniversary
shows are the funniest things on tel-
evision all year.

lri past columns, I’ve written that
the Letterman show isn‘t quite what
it used to be. I still Lhitik that. Let-
terrnzui and his statf just don‘t al-
ways seem to put the effort into the
program that they used to. Most of
the running gags I mentioned above
— the new gift items, the NBC
Bookmobile, etc. -— are rarely seen.
'l‘hat's a shame.

But a bad Letterrntui show is still
light years ahead of a good Arsenio,
a good Dennis Miller or almost any
other talk show on the air. liven Jay
Leno. whose brillitutt monologues
still work beautifully. has trouble
with any of the other comedy bits
he attempts on “The Tonight

Letterman. with his tremendous

following of the college—age crowd
of the 1980s and '90s. probably will
be considered the biggest comedic
influence over this generation. (If
you disagree. I‘d like to know who
else has had a comparable influence
over the past decade.) Many corne-
dians of today, including Letter-
mtur. Steve Martin, Robin Williams
and others. mention l‘)5()s and ‘60s
comics like Steve Allen, Jonathan
Winters. Johnny (‘arson and Bob
turd Ray as mentors. Look for l)a-
vid Letterman's nrune to be tossed
about iii the future with the same
degree of frequency.

Still, it's hard to imagine the pro—
gram lasting much longer - maybe
two or three tnorc years. tops. ()n
the air. Lettermtut seems less inter-
ested turd more crabby. Some will
say that‘s just part of his cynical.
stu‘castic style. But lately. the cyni-
cistn seems less like a comedy act
turd more like genuine drudgery.
I‘ve seen I ettcrrnan reruns on the A
(it IS network. 'I‘hosc shows 7 somc
of which are eight or nine years old

—— show a David Lettcrrnrut who
just seems a lot happier to be there.
That. plus the presence of tnore
socko comedy material. makes fora
better program.

The show is still lunny turd the
anniversary show is sure to be hilar—
ious. But I would rather the pro—
grrun go off the air while it‘s sllll
very good thtut to have it continue
on. declining frotn year to year.
What else could Letterman do'.’ At
one point. many years ago. there
was talk of Letterman pr‘txlucing
sitcoms. Ilc signed a contract sc\er'-

al years ago with 'l‘ouchstone Pic-
tures in case he ever decides to
make the plunge into the movie

Letterman has taken the TV talk

Sunday afternoon. as thousands
tuned into the nationally televised
UK-LSU basketball matclmp. a
much smaller number of sports fans
tumcd out at the Hillary J. Boone
Tennis Center to witness Wildcat

Those fans saw the UK men‘s
tennis team down Vanderbilt and
the women's team defeat South

Behind several great singles pcr-
formances. the UK men had no
problem in handing the Vanderbilt
Commodores their third straight de-
feat. convening five of its six sin-
gles matches into victories in a
meet that was over before the dou-
bles teams even took the court.

John Yancey captured the tezun‘s
first win 6-4. 6-4 and Scott Hulse
also added his 6-1. 7-5 win over
Micheal Pritchard.

David Culley brushed off Mi-
cheal Fox 6—3, 6-2 and. with the aid
of some heavy hitting. Mahyar
Goodarz took his match 6-3. 6-4.

Finally. sophomore Jason Yeagar
used great ball placement to frus-
trate Jim “Ozzie" ()sbome winning
6-3. 6-3.

Earlier. the women‘s team moved
to 2-0 on the 3 ‘ason as they battled
it out with a scrappy South (‘arolina
learn in a 5-4 dazzler.

In the singles category Susan
Klingenberg. Norma Sangestry. and
Nicky Wangsgard each had wins.
Antoinette (‘rreeh‘s intensity in ad-
dition to Klingenbcrg‘s hard serves
equaled a 6-3. l-6. 6-3 win.

That wasn't enough. though. The
meet went to the wire. It took a 4-6.
6-3. 6-4 win by the doubles learn of
Lora Suthle and Susan Bani in the
final match to give UK the victory.

The women‘s team hosts North
(‘arolina February l4. while the
men's team travels to Louisville
next Sunday.

A-hah. It's all my fault.
