BRIEFLY : MOTIVE FOR SLAYING OF TRANSIENT UNCLEAR.

CANOGA PARK - Police searched for a motive Monday in the slaying of a man found beaten to death in an alley over the weekend, officials said.

The body of Francisco Villareal, 37, was found about 8 a.m. Sunday in an alley in the 7100 block of Remmet Avenue, said Detective Rick Swanston of the Los Angeles Police Department's West Valley Division.

Police found a stick, considered the possible murder weapon, near the body but were unsure of who killed Villareal, described by authorities as a transient.

``We don't think it was robbery,'' Swanston said. ``He was in the center of an area that's rather heavily gang-infested, so we have not eliminated the possibility that this was gang-related. But (Villareal) was not a gang member.''

Mouseketeer's suit deal deadline set

Arbitration talks in a former Mouseketeer's $200 million royalties dispute against The Walt Disney Co. and the Screen Actors Guild must be completed by May 21, a federal judge said Monday.

Former Mouseketeer Darlene Fraschilla alleges cast members of the 1950s television show are owed the money from reruns and spin-off products.

U.S. District Judge Manuel L. Real ordered that the arbitration talks be completed by the May deadline or a lawsuit Fraschilla has filed against both Disney and SAG can proceed.

The royalties lawsuit has languished because of slow action by SAG in setting up the arbitration talks, said Fraschilla's attorney, Charles Rondeau.

A Disney spokesman declined to comment.

Food inspector tells trial he's not guilty

A Los Angeles County food inspector accused of soliciting a bribe from a Burbank restaurant owner in exchange for an A grade pleaded not guilty Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Orlando Arias, 42, of Van Nuys is charged with bribery and filing a false public document.

Deputy District Attorney Rune Sodonis said Monday that Arias told the owner of Wok Avenue he would give the restaurant an A for $200.

The owner called KCBS-TV (Channel 2) in November and a reporter there wired the restaurant owner, Jeff Tsai, with a camera and a microphone.

When Arias arrived at the restaurant he did not inspect the eatery's kitchen.
