San Fernando police today brought in a neighborhood handyman for questioning in connection with the slaying of two 6-year-old girls. Police Chief Winford E. Slaughter said the man frequently worked around the home of Mrs. Leonora Greenfield, 551 Harps St., in whose garage the near-nude bodies of the girls were found. Doctors said both probably had been sexually assaulted. The girls were Stephanie Hanna, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hanna, 533 Harps St., and Paula Cram, a foster child living with the family. Slaughter said the handyman has stirred up considerable friction by his presence in the Harps St. neighborhood. Meanwhile, a five-man sheriff's crime detail continued to scour the 500 block of Harps St., searching the grounds closely for clues and interviewing residents. Police said the girls apparently had been dead for about five hours when Slaughter discovered their bodies at 11 p.m. in the garage of Mrs. Greenfield. This view is of the side door to the garage.
