From Staff and Wire Reports

A special grand jury investigating rape allegations against former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson heard testimony from contestants in the Miss Black America pageant.

Tyson is accused of attacking an 18-year-old contestant July 19 at the Canterbury Hotel, where he was staying as a guest of Indiana Black Expo. No charges have been filed against Tyson, who has denied the accusation.

A special Marion County grand jury of three women and three men began its investigation Aug. 12. David J. Dreyer, chief counsel for prosecutor Jeffrey Modisett, has said he expects the investigation to be completed by Labor Day.
