By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, Aug. 2, 2002 http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/national/AP-SLA-Robbery.html SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Three former Symbionese Liberation Army members pleaded innocent Friday to a 1975 bank robbery and murder. Prosecutors plan to call kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst as the chief witness at the trial. Superior Court Judge Thomas Cecil set a Nov. 12 preliminary hearing for Emily Montague, 55; her ex-husband William Harris, 57; and Michael Bortin, 54. All were charged in January with killing 42-year-old Myrna Opsahl, a bank customer and mother of four who was depositing church collection money during the April 1975 robbery in suburban Carmichael.
