(Forcible Rape)

For the foregoing reasons, the judgment of the district court which denied the defendant's motion for the appointment of an interpreter is reversed and set aside. This matter is remanded to the district court for the purpose of holding a hearing on the defendant's motion in accordance with the views expressed in this opinion.

PER CURIAM :

2000-K- 1507 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. ILA WOMACK-GREY (Parish of Orleans)

(Second Degree Murder)

Accordingly, the decision below is reversed, the respondent's conviction and sentence are reinstated. Because the majority opinion addressed only the first three of respondent's assignments of error, this case is remanded to the court of appeal for consideration of respondent's remaining assignments of error.

(Possession of a Firearm by a Previously Convicted Felon)

The decision of the court of appeal is therefore reversed, respondents' conviction and sentence are reinstated, and respondent is referred to post-conviction proceedings on any claim of ineffective assistance of counsel.
