Virgil Scott, Kermit Pritchett, Eula Elrod Are Jailed On Murder Charge June 5 1941

Three persons, two men and a women, are in jail here in connection with the death Monday night of Walker Elrod, about 35 years old, a farmer who was stabbed to death at the home of his father, Ab Elrod, 12 miles south of town.

Those arrested were Virgil Scott, Kermit Pritchett and his sister Eula Elrod Thompson, who in 1927 was charged with two others of the slaying of Coleman Osborn at his store at Center Hill. She was convicted and sentenced to be electrocuted. Governor Hardman commuted her sentence in 1928 to life imprisonment and she was pardon in 1936 by Governor Tallmadge. Her husband Cliff Thompson and a Negro Jim Huge Moss, were electrocuted for the Osborn death.

According to reports, Scott, in company with the Thompson women, who is Walker Elrod's sister and Pritchett went to the Ab Elrod home last night, and an argument arose, during which Walker Elrod was stubbed and died instantly.

Sheriff Morrison said all those arrested had been placed in jail and that no date had been set for a preliminary hearing.

His wife and four children survive Elrod.
