Killing in Casey County

If reports are correct there was a good killing in Casey County last Sunday Week. James Adams, about thirty two years old, while under the influence of liquor, went to the home of Ed Claypool and was raising a disturbance. The son of Claypool, who is less than twenty years old, ordered him from the premises whe he showed fight. Young Claypool drew his gun and fired, killing the intruder. Only one shot was fired. Adams, it is said, had grossly insulted the wife of a neighbor of Claypool a short time before the killing. The young man who did the killing went to Liberty and surrendered.
