Argument Followed by Killing

A post office employee pleaded innocent in Municipal Court Monday to a charge of second degree murder police filed against him Sunday night after his girlfriend died from an apparent beating during a squabble in her North Side apartment. Andrew Bryant, 35, who lives at the Downtown YMCA had his case continued until Jan 6 for a preliminary hearing. Judge Wilbur Shull set bond at $5,000.
The victim, Nellie Corbin, 40, of 333 E. 9th Ave. was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before midnight. Miss Corbin had filed a charge of assault and battery against Bryant three months ago but came to court in October and asked to have the charges dropped.Bryant told detectives he and Miss Corbin had had a lengthy argument Sunday night. He said he was taking a bath and Miss Corbin dumped his clothes into the sink and started dousing them with water. Bryant said Miss Corbin threw a vase at him while he was in the bathtub and claimed she tried to hit him with a bottle when he came out of the bathroom. Bryant said he took the bottle away from her and hit her twice with his fist. He told police the blows knocked Miss Corbin against the door and she slumped to the floor. Bryant said he started to iron his wet clothing when he noticed Miss Corbin was not moving. He said he turned her over on her back and saw her head was bleeding. Bryant told police he had to go to another apartment to call for help. He told police he had had Miss Corbin's telephone disconnected because "she had a habit of calling the law on me".
