The defendant's in-custody confession was inadmissible for lack of a Miranda-type type warning, inasmuch as his trial was commenced post-Miranda. Miranda v. State of Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S.Ct. 1602, 16 L.Ed.2d 694 (1966).


The judgment of conviction is reversed and the case remanded for a new trial. Johnson v. State of New Jersey, 384 U.S. 719, 721, 86 S.Ct. 1772, 16 L.Ed.2d 882 (1966). Cf. Groshart v. United States, 392 F.2d 172, (9th Cir. 1968).
