WM. RAINWATER SHOT AND KILLED
Last Friday evening, Leander Ingram, a farmer, 59, at his home on Dryfork of Linefork, this county, shot and so severely injured Wm. Rainwater, 57, that he died Saturday evening following, about the time he reached the hospital at Seco and before medical attention could be given. Five shots were fired into Rainwater's body. Ingram was arrested and brought to jail here.
At an examining trial, held before Judge Sergent here on Monday, the facts of the killing seemed to indicate that several men, including Ingram, Rainwater, Philip Halcomb and another man, had been at Ingram's home or thereabout drinking until late in the evening. Ison and Halcomb apparently started to leave the place and had gotten to the gate near by when Rainwater decided to go back into the house where Ingram was. When he entered, Ingram, drinking and excited, grabbed his pistol and began shooting. Ingram says that Rainwater entered the house with a double-bit axe in his hand and that so excited him that he began shooting.
Rainwater came to this section some eight or ten years ago from Somerset, and had been variously employed. He ran a garage about two months in Whitesburg, early this spring. He was of a kind and pleasant disposition and was well liked by all who knew him.
Ingram is a son of the late Hiram Ingram and is well connected in the county. The killing took place at the old Ingram homestead on Dryfork. After the examining trial ended, Judge Sergent held the accused in a $5000 bond pending action of the coming August grand jury. He was remanded to jail in default of bond.
