(Los Angeles, California) Sirhan's mother and brother, Adel, testify. Defense tries to bar prosecution from using evidence seized in Sirhan's home. Sirhan is somber. Attorney Russell Parsons says he's more contemplative. Investigative ofr. William Brandt describes evidence obtained from Sirhan's room. Parsons says items can't be used in court since obtained without search warrant. Adel tells officers he had nothing to hide; house belongs to his mother. Mary Sirhan says she didn't authorize search either. Prosecutor Lynn Compton cross-exams. Adel used own key to open house for officers Judge Herbert Walker rules search legal.
