TOXICOLOGIST IS BARRED FROM MARIHUANA CASE
Newark, N. J., Feb. 12 - (AP) Upholding the objection of Prosecutor William Wachenfeld, Common Pleas Judge Daniel J. Brennan today barred a toxicologist from testifying at the trial of Mrs. Ethel Sohl, 20, and Genevieve Owens, 18 for murder in the slaying of William Barhorst.
Counsel for the defense sought to have the expert testify on the effects of marihuana on dogs. Counsel for Mrs. Sohl has based an insanity plea on her smoking of marihuana cigarettes which she testified made "wrong seem right".
Dr. James C. Munch of Temple University, said he had not observed the effects of prolonged use of narcotic on human beings. The court stopped him from describing results of experiments on dogs, whose nervous systems behave like those of humans.
Defense of Miss Owens was expected to follow the experts testimony. Her counsel Reginald C.C. Parnell, said she would be her own first witness.
Mrs. Sohl testified that when she shot and robbed William Barhorst, 34, in a bus last December 21, she was under the influence of marihuana and unable to distinguish "right from wrong".
