CONVICT IN DUAL KILLING IS MARRIED IN JAILHOUSE

A week after being convicted of murdering two physicians in his childhood home, Paul Cox married a 20-year-old college student in a jailhouse ceremony.

Cox, 27, was sentenced last week to 16 2/3 to 50 years in prison on manslaughter convictions in the deaths of Lakshman Rao and his wife, Shanta Chervu, in 1988 in their Larchmont home, where Cox had lived as a child.

The bride, Katherine Davis of Rye, a student at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., was accompanied by her mother and Cox's parents when she emerged from Westchester County Jail after Tuesday's nuptials.

The trial gained national attention when members of Alcoholics Anonymous -- to whom Cox confided about dreams he had about the murders -- were called to testify.

Cox testified that he had nightmares of the killings but could not remember them because he was in an alcoholic stupor.
