NEGRO CHILD KILLED BY SHOT FIRED BY HER HALF-BROTHER
Helen Jeanette Mann, 2-year old Negro child, the daughter of Jesse and Justine Mann, was instantly killed at 10 Monday morning when she was shot in the left chest with a .22 calibre rifle which was fired by Dallas Christian, 8, her half-brother.
The incident occurred near their home on the Bob Dodd farm 2 and 1/2 miles south of Stubbtown while their parents were working in a nearby field.
Prosecuting Attorney James "Tick" Vickrey said no criminal action is contemplated as a coroner's jury decided the shooting and death was accidental. Coroner John German conducted the inquest Monday afternoon and members of the jury were Floyd Hamlett, James Tillman, Ralph Goodin, H.G. Thomas, C.H. Bates and Ernest Robertson.
Services were conducted at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning from Needmore church, six miles south of here, with burial in Morgan Ridge cemetery. LaForge Funeral Home was in charge.
