WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- A criminal investigation into the death of a Shrewsbury man on a carnival ride last fall could be completed next month. Worcester District Attorney John Conte says he expects to present additional evidence in May to a grand jury investigating the September crash. He says some evidence in the case was presented to a grand jury earlier this month.
   Conte declined to comment on the progress of the inquiry or what charges may be lodged. However, he has subpoenaed records from both Jaro Amusements of Carlisle, the company that owns the ride, and the state Department of Public Safety, which oversees traveling carnivals.
   Andrew Fohlin was killed when the car in which he was riding came apart in midair at church fair in Shrewsbury.  State investigators blame the crash on mechanical problems and a loose lap bar nut.
