Pearl E. Gilbreath was murdered on the evening of 16 Feb 1936 by her estranged husband. Pearl had left her husband and was living with her children in a farmhouse in Brookville. Matthew M. Gilbreath, who had been staying with a neighbor, came to the house where Pearl was staying on the night of the murder. During the night, Matthew broke down the door leading into the kitchen where his wife was sleeping, seized a four foot chunk of wood from the broken door and beat his wife to death. She suffered a broken skull. Matthew Gilbreath was convicted of her murder and was sentenced of three to five years. Source: The Salina Journal
