A man accused in April 6 shootings that left one man dead and another wounded acted out of jealousy, the prosecution charged yesterday. Assistant District Attorney Roger King said the suspect, Henry Dennis, 24, was jealous of the success Leiland Da-ood was having at his discount store. So he shot and killed Da-ood's 22-year-old son, wounded a second man, and tried to kill Da-ood, according to testimony at Dennis's preliminary hearing yesterday. King said Dennis, of Medary Avenue near 21st Street, shot and killed Mikal Dodson, Da-ood's son, inside a home on Carlisle Street near Wingohocking, and shot and wounded Samuel DeShields, 25. King said Dennis then went to Da-ood's store at 30th Street and Lehigh Avenue and tried to kill him. Da-ood testified Dennis pulled out a gun inside the store and said, "I'm going to kill you. " Two shots were fired at Do-ood, he said.

This week's double feature of lesbian romances at the Roxy amounts to a Sheila McLaughlin mini-retrospective. The accomplished vanguard filmmaker and actress wrote and directed the 1987 feature She Must Be Seeing Things, an engaging comedy of sexual jealousy. McLaughlin herself stars in Seduction: The Cruel Woman, a 1985 exercise in sexual bondage directed by German filmmakers Elfi Mikesch and Monika Treut. The films are interestingly paired for the way they address obsession as a necessary component of sexual passion.

Envy makes a pretty entertaining three-minute trailer. If only they'd left it at that. At one hour and 39 minutes, this gag about an office drone who invents a spray that makes dog feces disappear - and who drives his best friend crazy with jealousy when the money starts pouring in - is a forced and flaccid affair. Not even Christopher Walken in a fright wig - and enunciating the phrase "pretzel kiosk" with gleeful lunacy - can bring this thing to life. Envy has been directed with no discernible flair by Barry Levinson, who's had a bad run lately (the virtually unreleased An Everlasting Piece, the bank-robbing flop Bandits)

It's the classic competitive friendship: Kit and Mildred were pals since girlhood in Harrisburg, and both moved on to become well-known writers. Kit's novels sell OK, and are much respected; Mildred's are list-toppers, become movies, and no one ever called them literary. Kit had lovers; Mildred had a child and a divorce, and the child, now in her teens, looks to Kit for mothering. Kit has turned into a worldly, play-it-as-it-lies woman; Mildred becomes more neurotic when she's not becoming more jealous.

On the day she appeared in court to learn whether she would be executed, Lisa Michelle Lambert, 19, wore a white satin evening gown. Lots of people thought that was wrong, but few were truly surprised. Michelle, with pure porcelain skin and champagne hair that caressed her shoulders like a silk scarf, wore contact lenses to make her brown eyes blue. "At her trial, Michelle looked like a teenager coming out of Sunday school. But Michelle was a coldhearted, empty person. You could look at her and think - there's a person with no soul.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I disagreed with your advice to the woman whose husband was upset about his wife going out for drinks with her male co-workers. ("Pulled in Two in Pennsylvania). We have been happily married for many years, and neither she nor I feel comfortable with a female employee going for drinks with mostly males. Drinking can lower inhibitions. Many office affairs begin in similar situations. In addition, no one should be driving home after two or more drinks. Office parties or get-togethers should not be held at bars.

Question: At times I get extremely jealous and insecure. For instance, the other night my boyfriend was getting work-related text messages from a female coworker, which was fine and understandable. However, when she sent a text at 12:30 a.m., I felt she was crossing a line. I got mad at my boyfriend for allowing her to text so late at night. He said it was nothing like that but told her to please stop texting and she did. After reading a past column of yours ( http://wapo.st/M2Ojle )

Question: My fiance and I have had a rough year living apart (jobs in two different foreign countries). Jealousy and trust have been constant issues, but I really thought things were getting better, and we're both very excited for our next transfer, when we can finally live together and plan our wedding!!! I just found out an ex of mine will be working in my new office; this ex and I are cordial, but not in touch. I immediately told my fiance, because there was no reason to hide this from him, and hiding it would aggravate his trust issues.

Question: So, I am dating this guy and I'm in love with him and I know he loves me back. But I can't, I absolutely can't, stop getting jealous of his ex-girlfriend. He still talks to her, because she has problems and he helps her through them. Whenever I know he's talking to her, see a picture of her, or even hear her name, it makes me sick to my stomach. I know why I'm jealous - it's the stop-being-jealous that's hard for me. I'm jealous because she met him first, she always gets his attention when she's in distress, and she's Asian and she's pretty.

Identical twins gave writers the original basis for situation comedy. Mistaken identity, the ability to appear in two places at once, and jealousy all flow from this prenatal premise for humor. Dramatists from Plautus to Paula Vogel have built plays around twins, but none with as much flair and comic mastery as Carlo Goldoni's 1747 The Venetian Twins . Under Alexander Burns' inspired direction, Quintessence Theatre Group's side-splitting contemporary staging surpasses Goldoni's success.

DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with a great guy, "Jonah," for four months. We get along well and enjoy a lot of the same things. At times he can be jealous when other men notice me, but we have never had arguments about it. Only one thing about me really bothers him - it's my infatuation with actor Mark Wahlberg. Jonah is so upset about it he refuses to see any of Mark's films with me and gets annoyed when I mention him. It irks me because I know being with Mark isn't a realistic option, but Jonah acts like it is. What can I say to make him see that he (Jonah)

The violence between her son, several of his Boys' Latin Charter School classmates and a group of students from West Catholic High School last week was another example of how dangerously impulsive youth can be, Wanda Haines said from her home last night. Her 15-year-old son, a sophomore at the charter school in West Philadelphia, is still recovering after a student slashed his finger during a brawl last Friday. Four other students were treated for similar injuries that they sustained during the morning melee outside the 46th Street SEPTA station.

Question: My younger sister and I are close, though we weren't always. Recently she started dating a man that she will likely marry. Because of his position and family connections, she is getting to enjoy exciting, fun events that few people get to participate in. I am beginning to feel the little twinges of jealousy. I am hyper-aware of jealousy toward her because she was chronically ill when we were young. Consequently, my parents spent a lot more time and energy on her. While the jealousy that stemmed from this is long past, it destroyed our relationship for years.
