miij a. Sim w1' i wmemmmw It I. klM Elizabeth Shannon Whittle and Anthony Perez of Avondale are on trial in Maricopa County Superior Court and accused of abusing their quadruplets. Anthony Megan, Robert and Damian, who were conceived naturally and bom Jan. 9, 1998, were hospitalized in April 1998 with injuries believed to have been caused by shaking.

Anthony Jr. was left deaf and blind. The trial began Sept. 24 and is expected to last through October. Monday's testimony Anita Whittle, the quadruplets' grandmother, said her 8-year-old granddaughter, Erica, was never rough with the babies and was allowed to hold them only while sitting on the couch.

A juror asked whether Erica, who has Down syndrome, was big enough to lift one of the babies out of its crib. Anita said that she was, but that she never saw Erica do so. Anita Whittle also said that on April 5, 1998, when she discovered Anthony Jr. lying motionless in his crib with a swollen head, she heard Perez say he had noticed his infant son looking that way earlier. Dr.

David Tellez, a critical-care doctor at Phoenix Children's Hospital who treated Anthony Jr. when he was admitted April 5, 1998, said he noticed a bruise the size of an adult thumbprint on the baby's inner elbow. Tellez said he put his hand there and noticed other bruises lining up with his fingers. The jury saw photos of Anthony injuries as Tellez pointed out bruises and what he called a "grossly swollen head." Tellez said Elizabeth Whittle and Perez told him they didn't cause the injuries. The Arizona Republic Sex offender faces new rape charge By Heather Romero The Arizona Republic A registered sex offender accused of the brutal rape and beating of a neighbor who spurned his advances admitted to sexually assaulting three to four women in the past, court records show.

Dee Lee Blalock, 41, was arrested Saturday at his home in the 1000 block of South Toltec Street in Mesa. He faces three counts of sexual assault, aggravated assault, arson and kidnapping charges in connection with a Sept. 27 attack on a 42-year-old woman who lives less than a mile from Blalock and his family. The woman called police about 8:30 p.m. last Monday night, saying her neighbor beat and raped her.

She was flown to an area hospital for severe facial injuries that included broken bones, and internal injuries related to the rape, said Mesa police Detective Jose Dee Lee Blalock Martinez. She is still recovering. She told police that she left her home to run a quick errand that night and returned to find her attacker, whom she identified as Blalock, inside her home, Martinez said. She had left her door unlocked. She said Blalock threatened to kill her if she called the police, but she did anyway, he said.

Investigators say they have DNA evidence that links Blalock, a self-employed truck driver with a side yard business, to her home. The arson charge stems from a fire that was set in the victim's home prior to the attack. The woman said Blalock tried to come onto her when she hired him to do yard work, Martinez said. His advances were so strong that she filed a police report, he said. Court records indicate that Blalock has prior arrests that include indecent exposure, aggravated robbery, false imprisonment, assault and kidnapping.

State Department of Corrections records show Blalock was released from prison in August 1995 after serving nearly six years on Gila County charges of false imprisonment and failure to register as a sex offender. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office would not release details about the crimes that forced him to register. III i. Fremont J.
