Homeless man sought in slaying A homeless man who may be headed for Massachusetts or Florida is wanted in connection with the beating and stabbing death of another homeless man behind a Henrico County 7-Eleven store last week.

County police have obtained a murder warrant against James R. Kilgore, 31, in connection with the Jan. 25 death of Larry F. Hobson. Hobson, 42, was found dead by firefighters who went to put out a small fire behind the store at 808 Azalea Ave.

that morning. Anyone with information on Kilgore's whereabouts is asked to call Henrico police at 672-4882 or 672- 5020. Foul play ruled out in man's drowning Preliminary autopsy results on a Henrico County man found drowned in a suburban pond yesterday morning rule out foul play, according to county police. A passer-by spotted the body of Robert David Anderson, 38, about 7:45 a.m. floating in Wilde Lake, a pond just west of Gayton Road in western Henrico.

Anderson lived one-half mile to the east at 12806 Fox Meadow Drive. Murder charge dropped Witness problems, delays are cited A 17-year-old accused of fatally stabbing the brother of a city police officer in a South Richmond nightclub last fall was released from jail yesterday after a murder charge was dropped. Prosecutor Learned D. Barry told Judge James B. Wilkinson that his decision not to try Kenneth W.

Washington in the stabbing of Glenn E. Conyers was prompted by witness problems and unavoidable pre-trial delays. But Barry also said the move was a tactical one not an exoneration. Conyers, 24, had been stabbed several times inside DJ's Lounge at the Days Inn, 6346 Midlothian Turnpike. The victim, of the 400 block of North 34th Street, was the brother of Patrolman Dave Conyers.

The incident apparently was sparked by an argument in the packed nightclub. When Glenn Conyers went down, his assailant was able to disappear into the crowd before police arrived. Dave Conyers was on duty that night and was dispatched to the nightclub apparently before police knew the identity of the victim. He was the first officer to arrive, and found his younger brother dying on the floor. At yesterday's hearing, Barry said fied Washington who, the assailant that witnesses initially identicouldn't pick him out of a police lineup.

Washington has been in custody for a substantial amount of time, he added, but the case has been slow to develop; any more delays could violate Washington's right to a speedy trial. But the case remains open, and Washington "is still a prime suspect," Barry told Wilkinson. "We're letting him go, he is not forgotten." INGLE Winning photo By The Associated Press Wayne Deel, a photographer with the Roanoke Times WorldNews, won the 1990 Virginia AP Laser Photo of the Year award last night. Deel received the award at the annual meeting of the Virginia Associated Press Newspapers. The winning picture was of University of Virginia football coach George Welsh.

It was taken during Georgia Tech's 41-38 upset of then-No. 1 Virginia in Charlottesville. Robin Layton Kinsley of the Virginian-Pilot and the LedgerStar of Norfolk won second place for a picture of a Marine hugging his daughter as he prepared to ship out to the Persian Gulf. The winning photographs were selected from among hundreds that move annually on the Virginia AP LaserPhoto network. Steakhouse robber gets 17-year term A Navy sailor who robbed a Chesterfield County steakhouse in November was sentenced yesterday to serve 17 years in prison for his role in the heist.

Irving Jerel Grooms, 19, of the 3200 block of Maury Street in Richmond pleaded guilty to one count each of robbery and use of a firearm. Under the terms of a plea agreement, Chesterfield Circuit Judge John F. Daffron Jr. sentenced Grooms to 30 years in prison, with 15 years suspended, on the robbery conviction and two years on the firearm charge. Grooms was one of two men charged in the robbery of the manager of the Western Sizzlin' Steak House at Hull Street and Courthouse roads at 7:55 a.m.

Nov. 12. The manager, who was alone in the restaurant, let the men in after they knocked on a side door and said, "Produce." The manager had been expecting a produce delivery that morning, police said. The men, who were armed with handguns, stole $6,418 before shutting the manager in a freezer. He freed himself and called police.

Based on a witness' description of the getaway car, a Chesterfield patrolman spotted Grooms' car at Turner and Hull Street roads and a chase ensued into Richmond, where Grooms slammed his car into a tree at Circlewood Drive and Hull Street. Grooms and another man jumped out and ran into an apartment in the La Mancha Apartments, where they were arrested. Police recovered all the stolen money, a pellet gun pistol' and a revolver from the car. The co-defendant in the robbery, Nelson Eugene Seals, 19, of Silacog, faces trial Tuesday. Both Grooms and Seals were absent without leave from Navy ships based in Norfolk.

Neither had reported for duty after completing training last summer..
