          User of Alternative Medicine Charged With
          Manslaughter After Girl Dies

          By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

               SHEVILLE, N.C. -- A practitioner of alternative medicine
has been
               charged with manslaughter in the death of an 8-year-old
diabetic girl
               after he was accused of persuading her mother to use
herbs as
          treatment.

          The girl, Helena Rose Kolitwenzew, died on Oct. 21 after her
mother,
          Marion, stopped administering insulin, police Lt. Sam
Constance said on
          Friday.

          The defendant, Lawrence Perry, 46, who operates the General
Health Care
          Facility for Preventive and Alternative Medicine in Columbus,
was held on a
          manslaughter charge on Friday at the Buncombe County Jail on
$50,000
          bond.

          A grand jury will be asked to decide whether to indict Perry
on a charge of
          practicing medicine without a license, Lieutenant Constance
said. A decision
          has not been made whether to charge the child's mother.

          Perry and the center have unlisted telephone numbers and could
not be
          reached for comment on Friday.
