TERRIBLE TRAGEDY~~
JEALOUSY CAUSES MURDER IN FAIRMOUNT~~
GEO. CARTER KILLS HIS WIFE AND COMMITS SUICIDE~~
FIRED BUT TWO SHOTS, BOTH INTO THE TEMPLES - CORONER'S INQUEST HELD TODAY~~

Geo. Carter, Christmas afternoon, shot and killed his wife and committed suicide. She died instantly and the murderer died half an hour after the shooting, which occurred at 1:35 o'clock.

They had been married twelve years and had three children.

The motive of the crime is said to have been jealousy.

Both shots were fired into the right temple.

H.R. Ross, who lives next door, saw Carter follow his wife into the front yard, struggle with her and shoot her in the temple, then turn the gun upon himself and fire another fatal shot. ~~~
