A University of Arizona employee accused of murdering his wife returned to work on campus yesterday.

Ralph David McCormick, a senior office specialist in the Facilities Management department, arrived at the Facilities Management Building, 1331 E. Fifth St., at about 7 a.m. yesterday.

"He's happy to have the opportunity to go back and work," said Michael Piccaretta, McCormick's attorney. "He hopes his job performance will continue to be good, and he'll be a good employee and a good person."

In August, McCormick's wife was found beaten to death with a baseball bat and burned unrecognizable.

McCormick's case is now in the courts, and a pretrial conference is scheduled for early January. If the case does go to trial, it will probably begin in late spring, Piccaretta said.

In 1947, despite strong Arab opposition, the United Nations votes for the partition of Palestine and the creation of an independent Jewish state.

In 1963, one week after President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, President Lyndon B. Johnson established a special commission, headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, to investigate the assassination. After ten months of gathering evidence and questioning witnesses in public hearings, the Warren Commission report was released, concluding that there was no conspiracy in the assassination, either domestic or international, and that Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin, acted alone.
