Page 3 Killed Her Brother
Mrs. Mollie Turnbull shot and instantly killed her brother, Colonel Adams, aged about 30, in the Cedar Creek section, Wednesday. She used a double barreled shot gun and the shot took effect just below the heart. Mrs. Turnbull is prostrated over the affair and is not able to leave her bed. Officers O. P. Newland and J. G. Riddle went to her home immediately after the news of the killing reached them but made no arrest on account of her feeble condition. It is claimed that the brother had beat her and a bruised shoulder bears evidence of his inhuman treatment. Adams had a knife in one hand and a pistol in the other when he entered his sister's yard and the supposition is she thought her time had come and shot in self-defense. The dead man was buried yesterday afternoon.
