WASHINGTON — The 165,000 jobsthe U.S. economy added in Aprilweren’t the only reason to be cheeredby Friday’s employment report.Nearly as significant were the LaborDepartment’s revised estimates of howmany jobs employers added in the pre-vious two months. Whenever the gov-ernment issues its employment reportfor the past month,it also revises the job totals for the previous two.It turns out,the department saidFriday,that many more jobs were creat-ed in February and March than firstthought.Initially,a severe slowdown seemedto have occurred in March:The govern-ment had estimated that just 88,000 jobs were added. That would have beenthe fewest in nine months.That was then. Now,March looksmuch stronger. On Friday,the depart-

Either of the two bullets in Parima Parineh’shead could have killed her or at least incapaci-tated her beyond a point where she’d be able toshoot herself again,a forensic pathologist told jurors Friday as the prosecution continuedbuilding its murder case against the cash-strapped husband accused of staging the deathas a suicide to collect on insurance.Dr. Thomas Rogers,who performed theautopsy on Parima Parineh after her April 13,2010 death,said one bullet traveled through herright cheek and exited near the left ear while thesecond shot into her right lip and existed on theright side of the head. The presence of powderburns on her skin show that the weapon wasclose but not pressed against her skin andRogers said he’d never before seen a gunshotsuicide like that allegedly of Parima Parineh.“Typically speaking,a gunshot suicide in myexperience is one gunshot wound,Rogers said,adding that typical shootings enter at the side of the head,the inside of the mouth and morerarely under the chin.Rogers said there’s no way of knowing whichshot came first or if death was a culmination of the wounds or an individualshot.“Hypothetically ... takeaway one of the gunshotwounds and either had thepotential to kill the individ-ual,Rogers said.Exactly how Parineh diedis key to the defense of Pooroushasb “Peter”Parineh,67,who is chargedwith murder for the purpos-es of financial gain andfaces life in prison without parole if convicted.Defense attorney Dek Ketchum told jurors inopening statements that Parima Parineh,56,killed herself in the couple’s Woodside mansionso that their three grown children wouldn’t besaddled with their millions of dollars of debt.Ketchum plans to call experts to testify thatwomen do commit suicide by gun despite com-mon assumption they do not. The experts willalso testify a percentage require more than oneshot and that Parima Parineh’s first shot did notprevent her from shooting again. Ketchum alsosaid Parineh held the gun in front of her face.Prosecutor Jeff Finigan asked Rogers thelength of her arms — 25 inches from the top of the shoulder to the tip of her third finger —which implied the possibility the defense’sclaim will be questioned. Rogers said he can’ttell specifically how close the gun was to herhead when fired.As Rogers testified about the damage toParima Parineh’s head,including broken teethand metal fragments,a bailiff handed her hus-band several tissues.When Parima Parineh died,she had low lev-els of Prozac and another antidepressant in hersystem,according to toxicology tests.The defense said Parineh’s severe depressionwas a factor in her death and in an earlier over-dose six weeks prior.Under cross-examination,Rogers admittedhe cannot testify about unsuccessful suicideattempts involving multiple shots becausepathologists do not deal with the living.Four shots were actually fired at ParimaParineh,one of which may have grazed hercheek,according to FiniganRogers said there was no signs that happenedbut Finigan pushed that perhaps one of the othershot’s wounds hid the grazing.“Anything’s possible,Rogers said.Parineh remains in custody without bail. Thecase continues Monday.
