Oct 13—tTI—Attor ney General Harry McMullan was notified today that the U. S. Supreme Court had refused to review the case of Marvin Claude Bell, 24, of Yadkinville, who is under a death sentence for criminal assault. Bell and his fellow defendant, Ralph Vernon Litteral, 35, of i Winston—Salem, were scheduled to die in the gas chamber at central prison here last June 20 for assault on a 15-year-old El kin school girl. However, Bell’s attarnevs se cured a stay of execution at the last minute in order to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Governor Cherry, announcing that he would not let Litteral die until the Bell appeal was settled, granted Litteral a re prieve and continued to re prieve him at intervals until two weeks ago. Litteral now is scheduled to die on Oct. 31, and if the U S. Supreme Court decision is certi fied back to the state Supreme Court before Friday, Bell’s exe cution will be set for the same date. On the day that Bell’s attorneys took their appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Gov ernor Cherry announced that he would not grant clemency in the case, saying: “If we are going to have capi tal punishment for criminal-as sault, this is one case which should be carried out.’’ Bell and Litteral were convict ed in Wilkes Superior Court of criminally assaulting Peggy Shore. She testified at their trial that they grabbed her as she stepped off a bus near her home and took her on a wild night ride that eneded near John son City, Tenn. During the ride, she testified, both men assaulted her several times. Litteral, a few days before he was to have been executed in June, signed a will leaving his brain to the Bowman Gray medical school at Winston-Salem and his eyes to an agency w^ich might use the corneas in restor ing sight to some blind person.
