This newspaper article was published in the Coos Bay News on July 1, 1896. It describes the hanging of Carl Albrecht in Marshfield (present-day Coos Bay).

On February 18, 1896, Albrecht followed his estranged wife through the streets of Marshfield, threatening to kill her if she did not return to him. She had filed for divorce days earlier on the grounds of cruelty. When she refused to acquiesce to his demands, Albrecht stuck a revolver into her back and fired five times, killing her instantly. In an article published on the day of his hanging, the Oregonian noted that "when his dastardly deed was committed, Albrecht turned and pointed his revolver at himself, as if he were going to take his own life, and then took to his heels to get out of reach of the officers." A police officer followed after Albrecht, shooting him twice when Albrecht raised his gun. After his recovery, Albrecht was tried and found guilty of first-degree murder on May 3. Less than two months later he was hanged at the Coos County courthouse.
