1508-16-87 08:58 ped New Krishna city could serve as a world model MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (UPI) _ The building of a 10,000-person Hare Krishna city in Marshall County could set the stage for other spiritu!l citid 8 County Sheriff Donald Bordenkircher and chief deputy Joseph Hummel. Drescher charges he was stripped to his underwear and kept in a cold cell during his last 10 days at the jail in January. He was transferred to the West Virginia Penitentiary to serve a life sentence after being found guilty of murdering Krishna devotee Charles Saint Denis in 1983. Marshall County Prosecutor Thomas White, who is representing the two county law enforcers, said Friday the lawsuit is filled with "wild allegations." "Most of them look like things I would imagine the sheriff's department would be denying," he said. Bordenkircher had called Drescher an "absolute liar" and said the inmate was kept in a bare cell because he threatened to commit suicide. The sheriff also removed any books from the cell, saying Drescher could eat the pages, become ill and authorities would have to take him to a hospital, leaving more opportunities for a suicide attempt. The prosecutor has 30 days to file a response to the suit, whitectural plans for the expected 10-year project are not yet complete, the commune probably would not build concrete bunkers to help people survive a nuclear war, Gadadhar Das said. "We trust God for protection," he said.
