23 year old Lynn Woolford sits in a contemplative pose while on trial for manslaughter following a fatal argument with 72 year old veteran Morton Clark. Clark had apparently made derogatory comments against one of Woolford's female friends. Woolford then slapped Clark, who fell to the ground and died of a fractured skull. Woolford was found not guilty.
