Killer Won't Be Watching Summer

Posted: February 10, 1998

Too bad, Summer.

Despite the ever-so-public declaration about missing the puffy-faced murderer that she'll make on TV tomorrow, the object of her remarks won't be able to see her.

That's because ``American Journal'' doesn't air in Houtzdale, Pa., where the medium-security prison in which Craig Rabinowitz is serving his life sentence is located.

But he does have a TV in his cell, said his attorney, Jeff Miller.

At any rate, Miller said no one should believe a word Summer - the dancer also known as Shannon Reinert - says.

In the interview, which will air tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. on KYW-TV (Channel 3), the 25-year-old stripper said she misses Rabinowitz and thought he was the perfect man. She said she didn't know if his late wife, Stefanie, knew of their relationship.

``Summer can say anything she wants,'' Miller said. ``The difference between what she says and what is truthful is substantial. She may believe what she's saying but it's not the truth. It's not accurate.''

Rabinowitz confessed in October to killing his wife in order to collect $1.8 million in insurance. He met Reinert when she worked at Delilah's Den. He spent between $1,000 and $3,000 on her per week, according to investigators.
