NEW YORK -- 'Preppie' murder suspect Robert Chambers was rejected by a Church of Scientology center for failing to meet its standards of 'character and behavior' just months before he killed his date in Central Park, officials disclosed Monday.

Chambers, a former altar boy freed on bail with the help of a Catholic archbishop, was twice turned away from the scientology Celebrity Center, which has counseled such show business luminaries as John Travolta and Karen Black, officials said.

Assistant District Attorney Linda Fairstein made the initial disclosure during a hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, and the church confirmed the story.
