Fatal Affray at Markleeville. - Markleeville, June 28th. - About one o'clock this afternoon M. Peltcher [Peltier], a butcher of this city, was stabbed in the throat by a man named A. T. Lee, who drove his meat wagon. Peltcher lived but a few minutes. The parties had some words together, when Lee seized a large butcher knife and gave the deceased a terrible cut in the throat. Lee was immediately arrested. Justice Bonney will hold an inquest this afternoon. The public is greatly excited, the deceased being much respected. (Sacramento Daily Union, 6/29/1864)

Peltier was a native of Canada, age about 32 years; he was about 5 feet tall and stocky; was stabbed in the neck by A.T. Lee at about 2 p.m. in the butcher shop (According to Preliminary Hearing testimony in case of People v. Augustin T. Lee, June 30, 1864; at Alpine Archives, Box 1, File 2; see also Coroner's Jury Inquest, June 28, 1864).
