Assailant Back On Trial

Nearly two years after plunging a kitchen knife into the back of Monica Seles and putting her tennis career on hold, her assailant goes on trial again today.

This time, prosecutors and Seles’ lawyer hope Guenter Parche will receive a tougher sentence than the probation he got at the end of his first trial in October 1993.

Both the prosecutors and Seles, who was a co-plaintiff in the case, appealed against the original two-year suspended sentence.
