             contradicted by her husband's testimony during which he                  
             never mentioned any jewelry that was inherited from                      
             petitioner's mother or grandmother.  Rather, in reviewing                
             petitioner's appraisal of the jewelry, he testified that he              
             had acquired the jewelry over a period of many years.  He                
             testified as follows:                                                    

                  Q         Again, describing the jewelry that                        
                       is contained in this appraisal, these were                     
                       various items that you acquired over the                       
                  A         That's correct.                                           

                  Petitioner knew that her husband had collected                      
             and stored large amounts of cash in their home.  One of                  
             Mr. DiMichele's criminal conspirators, Mr. Madgin,                       
             testified that from time to time he delivered large                      
             amounts of cash, anywhere from $25,000 to $100,000, to                   
             Mr. DiMichele at petitioners' home.  Mr. Madgin also                     
             testified that in 1985, he delivered a brown bag containing              
             approximately $50,000 to $100,000 in cash to petitioner in               
             her husband's absence.  Mr. Madgin also testified credibly               
             that on one occasion, he discussed drug transactions with                
             Mr. DiMichele and another person and they counted money at
