From the Times Journal dated July 25, 1957:
Herlan Brumley, about 20, of Clinton Co. died within minutes on a road near Rowena, after his distant cousin plugged a knife blade into his heart.
Held in Russell County Jail, under $5,0000 bond on a charge of murder is Riley Brumley, also in his early twenties.
"Had to do it."
Sheriff Joe L. Chumbley said Riley told him, "I had to do it...he had a stick...I figured he was gonna get me...I stabbed him in the heart and intended to kill him...I knew I had done it the way the knife pulled out."
