Mrs. Charles Casper was killed by her husband Friday (24 Aug 1928), and was buried in Meisenheimer Cemetery. He hit her three times with a hammer in the barn at their home east of Dongola. She and her mother-in-law, Alice Casper, were washing in the back yard. He came from the barn, talked to them, and then went to dig potatoes. He went back to the barn and told his mother to send his wife to the barn. He then ran to a neighbor's house, where he was arrested by the sheriff. He was judged to be insane and taken to Anna State Hospital on Saturday (25 Aug 1928). There was a coroner's inquest. Her funeral was at Mt. Olive Church. She was the daughter of H. W. Karraker, of Dongola. She left two children, a girl aged 7 years, and a boy aged 2 years.
