WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A disbarred lawyer who lives three doors from Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton says he's being "abused for publicity's sake" after being charged with murdering his wife.

In a jailhouse interview with The Journal News, Carlos Perez-Olivo insisted he's innocent.

Perez-Olivo, who lives in Chappaqua, was arrested Thursday in what a prosecutor called a chilling "execution" of his wife, Peggy, on Nov. 18. Perez-Olivo also was shot, in the abdomen.

Perez-Olivo says he and his wife were attacked by a stranger who forced their sport-utility vehicle off the road in suburban Westchester County.
