Andre Brooks believes in conserving water. He obviously loses his temper when someone wastes the precious resource. Last March 2, Brooks, 40, demonstrated his passion for conservation. He shot and killed a boarder in their apartment building on Dorrance Street near Carpenter, because the man had left the water running in the bathtub, Assistant District Attorney Richard Sax said yesterday. After a preliminary hearing this week before Municipal Judge Teresa Carr Deni, Brooks was ordered to stand trial in the murder of Anthony Carr, 40. Sax said Carr had died of a gunshot wound to the back.

We want to build a frame around our old bathtub. It's the old, standard- type bathtub on legs, but we think it would look better with a new enclosure. Can you get us started on this project? You can get a new look in your bathroom by doing this. It will seem as if you replaced the tub, but your plan will cost much less and be much much because you don't have to remove the tub. A frame should be made of pressure-treated 2-by-4s. There should be a bottom and top plate with studs placed every 16 to 18 inches.

The apartment along South Avenue in Secane was in disarray when police arrived Wednesday afternoon: Blood and feces were on the floor, ripped-up papers were strewn about, and a message was written on a wall. In the bathroom, authorities found the naked body of Markia Benson, 36, in a bathtub full of water. Police in Upper Darby Township have ruled Benson's death a homicide, and on Thursday announced they were still searching for her killer, whom they believe Benson knew. But whoever did it, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Mike Chitwood said at a news conference, "meant to hurt her, embarrass her, and harm her. " Benson had several injuries to the head, neck, and face, consistent with stab wounds or even strangulation.

Q uestion: A year ago, we had a plumber install a Nevian instant hot-water heater at our home. Everything worked fine for about four months. Now, sometimes when we turn on the bathtub water, it will be cold, and it doesn't get hot unless you turn off the faucet and turn it back on. We had the plumber out who installed the heater, and he said that we must be getting a back feed from the washer or dishwasher. He said to check that and left, which doesn't solve anything. We did watch to see, when it did this, whether anything else was running.

Investigators have recovered what they believe is human tissue from the bathtub drain of a Center City apartment belonging to the pimp charged with murdering a Northeast Philadelphia man, then dumping the victim's headless and mutilated torso into the Schuylkill, police sources said Friday. Crime scene investigators made the gruesome discovery Thursday night, when they returned to Keith Tolbert's South 11th Street apartment and began removing the plumbing in the bathroom. That's where they believe the 34-year-old Tolbert used a hatchet to remove Francis Zarzycki's head, arms, and legs before dumping the torso in the river late last month.

Criminal defense lawyer A. Charles Peruto Jr., whose paralegal was found dead in the bathtub of his Rittenhouse Square apartment in May, is calling for an end to the grand jury investigation into her death, saying it has damaged his reputation. In a letter to District Attorney Seth Williams, Peruto called for a "speedy conclusion" to the probe, which he said has hurt his reputation and his law firm and could cost him millions. "I am a citizen of this county and the delay of any announcement of the only findings that could be made in this case have damaged me so severely and incalculably that words cannot adequately describe what I am going through," Peruto wrote in a July 11 letter to Williams.
