ARTHUR BRUCE PERKINS, APPELLANT

This is a capital criminal case in which the appellant was charged, in a two-count information, with having committed two first degree murders on or about December 15, 1947. The murder of Geneva Jessup was charged in count I, and the murder of her husband, Ed

Jessup, in count II. In each count, it was charged that the alleged murder was committed by beating the victim about the head with a rock and by stabbing with a knife. The appellant, upon arraignment, pleaded guilty to the information, but, upom motion of the attorneys appointed by the court to conduct his defense, was permitted to withdraw that plea and enter a plea of not guilty.

At the close of a long trial, beginning March 15, 1948, and ending on March 23rd, the jury returned a verdict of guilty as to each count, and also the following special verdicts:

"We, the jury, duly impaneled to try the above entitled case, do find that the death penalty shall be inflicted as to count one."

"We, the jury, duly impaneled to try the above entitled case, do find that the death penalty shall be inflicted as to count two."
