Jehn MeierhefTer's Mysterious Murder A
Remarkable Trial An Almest Dying Man
in Court The Widow's Strange and
Tlirllllng Story The Scene
After the Verdict.
N. Y. Sun.
On Oct. !), 1879, policemen of Orange,
N. J., acting upon information received of
the murder of Jehn MeicrhelTcr, of West
Orange, visited the house of the dead man,
where the crime had been penetrated at
11 o'clock at night, and arrested as the
supposed murderers Mrs. Melerheffer and
a man named Frank Lammens, who was
found in Mrs. MeierhelTer's room. The
body of Jehn Mcierhefler, with the head
.shattered by a pistol bullet fired at short
range, was found in the cellar.
On the 19th of January, 1880, Mrs. Mei Mei
crhelTcr and Frank Lammens were put en
trial before Judge Depuc, in Newark.
William B. Guild, jr., appeared for the
woman's defence, and for the man were
Messrs. Charles Beruhcrling and W. II.
Hagamau. The trial was slew in progress,
partly because of the great number of wit
nesses summoned, but mere, by reason of
the fact that for a great deal of the pro
ceedings the services of an interpreter were
required. Then eight days were lest
through the severe illness of the defendant
Lammens. lie is a weak-minded and
hijrhly-cxcitablc person, and the agitation
of the trial threw him into a violent fever,
from which he developed a dangerous case
of erysipelas. Twe days before he was
again taken into court, when it was flat
tering his condition te call him convales
cent, his lawyers visited him for necessary
purposes of consultation, and in
one hour of conversation with them
he became se excited that his fever
returned in full force, and, in the opinion
of one of the physicians attendant upon
him, his condition was as bad as it had
been a week befeic. It was: practically
impossible te held any proper consultation
with him, as a few sentences of discussion
of the crime alleged against him would
start mm. en in a rapid jumuie et wild as
severations of innocence, disconnected ar
guments, and irrelevant questions, uttered
iu loud, excited tones, and an almost un
intelligible mixture of broken English and
German. Nevertheless, en the second day
after that visit by his lawyers he was taken
down te the court house and carried in
there that his trial might proceed. Dur
ing the eight days of his absence the jury
had been kept together awaiting his sulli
cient recovery te enable him te appear be
fore them. Fer nearly a week after his
physical condition was such that he could
net be taken te and fro between the ceuit
house and the jail daily, but was kept tin
der guard at night in one of the rooms of
the court house, wheie he lay upon a sofa.
While the trial was actually in progress he
could only sit up occasionally for a few
minutes at a time, his almost constant po
sition being a recumbent one upon a sofa.
But Mrs. Meierheil'er and Frank Lam
mens had the same notion with a mere
change of person in its composition ; she,
that as seen as she gave her testimony iu
court she would be allowed te go home,
while he would be held and hanged for the
murder; he, that as seen as he testified
he would be turned loose and she would
be convicted of the crime. Consequently
it was a terrible astonishment for them
both when the leng-sulTcriug jury con
cluded their labors en the evening of Feb.
115, 1880, at 7 o'clock, by rendering a ver
dict of "guilty of murder 'in the first de
gree" against both the accused persons.
That result overwhelmed them with ter
ror, under the influence of which Lammens
became immediately mere dangerously ill
than he had been at any preceding time
since his arrest, and even Mrs. Mcierhelfer,
who, although complaining of heart dis
ease, lung troubles, pain in her head, &c,
all the while, had managed te keep up
until new, was at once prostrated by a
raging nervous fever. Sentence of death
was, at the request of counsel,
delayed. The culprits were put te
bed in the hospital departments of the
jail, and have net yet been able te
rise. During the first day, since condem
nation, neither of them could eat at all.
On the second and third days they have
been induced te take merely enough te
support life. Watchers remain constantly
with each of them te administer the reme
dies prescribed by Dr. II. A. Kerucmaun,
the jail physician, and te prevent them,
Lammens especially, from talking. Ne
visitors arc allowed te sec them upon any
pretext. The only exception te this rule
has been in the case of the Rev. Mr.
McNair, chaplain of the jail, who called
upon them both en Sunday. Mrs. Meier
holler assured him that she was a Chris
tian woman, ami added that she had given
herself te Jesus several years age, which
iu view of later developments, he was dis
posed te doubt, and he told her se. This
made her indignant, and she does net want
te see him any mere. Lammens hailed
him as "My most noble Christian
brother," ami said he might pray for him
if he liked, if he would pray that he
"might get out of this scrape," and
assured him that he (Lammens) had been
" born a Christian and confirmed." Lam
mens has an extravagant fondness for
addressing all with whom he comes in con
tact in such phrases as " My most noble
brother," "My sublime learned brother,"
uttered with fawning obsequiousness that
is meant for extreme politeness.
Ne sooner were the prisoners returned
te the jail after trial than each began be
seeching all they could reach te call upon
the ether and urge a confession of guilt
that the one petitioning might be saved.
" Oh ! de go te Frank for me and get him
te confess and get me out of this trouble,"
cried Mrs. Mcierhefler. " Ge te her and
ask her these questions, and get her te tell
you she did it, and save my life," begged
Lammens. Te Sheriff Van Rensselaer, te
Cel. Jacksen, the warden ; te Dr. Korne Kerne
mann, te the chaplain and the keepers
these petitions are still hourly repeated as
often as opportunity occurs. Neither Mrs.
Meierhefter nor Lammens diverges for an
instant from the stories told by them re
spectively at the time of their arrest, before
the Corener's jury, and in the court.
Each declares the ether te be guilty, and
each calls Ged te witness that the ether is
lying. Agitated by ceaseless terror day
and night, sleepless and tortured by bodily
ailments induced by their mental distress,
these wretched beings seem te endure a
punishment hardly less horrible than the
fate te which they are deemed.
This, however, is net the only, or even
the most remarkable feature in the story
of the crime for which they are jointly
condemned, which, condensed from the
very voluminous testimony ettered in the
trial, is as fellows :
Jehn Meierhefter and his wife were Ger
mans ; he, at the time of his death, 37
years of age ; she, 39. She came te this
country at the age of 11, and worked out
in the vicinity of Orange, N. J., as child's
nurse, and afterward as- house servant,
until the age of 17, when she married
Meierheffer. A year or se after their mar
riage he, in conjunction with her brother,
LANCASTER, PA., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1880.
Nichalas Klemm, bought at West Orange
a twenty-acre farm, upon which he lived
with his family up te the date of his mur
der. The Meierheffers had two sons, one
aged 20 and the ether 14, at the time the
father was murdered. The elder lived
away from home in late years. The yield
of produce en the little farm and the keep
ing of some boarders furnished the family
resources. Fer several years prier te his
death Jehn Meierhefter manifested a ten
dency te periodical insanity, sometimes be
coming very violent in his treatment of
his family. Mrs. Meierheffer, witnesses
said, uniformly treated him kindly and
considerately. Five weeks before the
murder Frank Lammens, a tramp, stepped
at 3Ieiepheffer's gate, and, after a short
conversation, Mrs. Meierheffer employed
mm te worKen tne larm. lie confessed te
the police after his arrest.
It was shown that Jehn Meierhefter was
of a querulous, fault-finding, and abusive
disposition ; that within three weeks of the
homicide he had three violent quarrels
with Lammens the last one en the morning
of the murder, in which he called him
opprobrious names, and ordered him te
"clear out," te which Lammens retorted
that he "had tee much te say." Twe weels
prier te the killing el Meierheffer, Lam
mens said te Jehn H. Osberne, a house
painter, who bearded at Meicrhefter's,
that Mrs. Mcierhefler had a nice faim
there, and that it was a pity she had such
a crazy fellow for a husband ; that she
could de well if she had a chance, and
added. " him, if he wouldn't sheet
Meierheffer for five cents." Te a me
chanic named Magee, also bearding there,
he also said, subsequently, that he would
sheet Meierheffer for a paper of tobacco.
All this brinjrs the story te the morning
of the homicide. Here the contradictious
between the two accused persons begin.
Lammens, en the stand, admitted that he
was in and about the house all that day,
except for a little while after 11 o'clock iu
the forenoon, when he said Mrs. Meier Meier
eoffer sent him away te Madame Gillette's
saloon for whisky. At that time the
niurder was done, of which he swore he
knew nothing until he was arrested. But
Madame Gillette and ether witnesses testi
fied that his visit te her saloon for whisky
was paid at seven o'clock in the morning,
and that he was net there again that day.
Mrs. Meierheffer testified that, in conse
quence of her becoming convinced that
Lammens was a thief, of his impreptr
overtures te her, and of his violent threats
against her husband's life, and against her
if she did net accede te his wishes, she was
anxious te get him out of the house. On
the morning of the murder she told Jehn
Pierson, a school teacher who bearded
with her, of her fears, and, at her request,
he wrote a letter for her te a man in
Orange, named Jacqui, who she supposed
was a policeman, asking him te come te
her assistance immediately, as there was a
man in the house who had threatened her
life and the life of her husband. That let
ter was written at 7 o'clock, and at ence
despatched by her youngest son, Theo Theo
eore, who was instructed if he could net
find Jacqui te carry it te the police station
and te tell the police what was wanted.
Jacqui was net found, and the marshal or
chief of police refused te interfere, .saying
he had no jurisdiction, although the 'boy
told him his mother's trouble. Theodere
took the letter back te his mother at about
9V o'clock, and then went te Mr. Pierson's
school, where he and the teacher remained
until the close of the afternoon session.
All this has been fully substantiated by
What new ensues is, se far as the mur
der is concerned, and entirely, with the
exception of where ether persons are in
troduced in the narration, Mrs. Mcierhof Mcierhef
i'cr's unsupported story. She says that at
about half past 11 o'clock Lammens came
into the kitchen, where she was sitting,
with his pistol in his hand and said he was
" going te sheet the old man." He then
went out of the back deer te leek for his
victim. She ran out of the front deer te
find her husband, who was outside the
house, and give him warning. As she ran
around the house she saw him just en
tering the back deer, with Lam
mens cle.se behind him. When she reach
ed the back deer her husband had just
descended the first step of the cel
lar stairs in the hallway, eight feet from
the back deer, and at that instant Lam
mens, putting the pistol close te the back
of the old man's head, fiied. The body of
the murdered man tumbled te the feet of
the stairs. She ran back in affright the
way she came, and Lammens sprang out
of the front deer and the house te meet
her. At the comer of the house, by the
arbor, he met her, threw his arm about
her, the pistol still in one of his hands, and
cried, New you arc mine." They returned
te the kitchen together and she sat down,
powerless te speak or te attempt flight. He
saiu inat.n sue mentioned wnat nc
had done, he would kill her as he had
killed her husband. He went down the
cellar and rifled the body of a pockctbeok
and money bag, which he brought up.
The greceryman came te the deer te see
if she wanted anything in his line. Lam
mens, with his pistol, steed by the deer
out of sight, and she said "Ne ; nothing."
The greceryman drove away. Three hun
ters, carrying guns and apparently intoxi
cated, approached the house. She went
out back of the house and remained there.
Lammens met them and told them he was
alone in the house. They asked for milk.
He said there was none. They insisted
that there was and proposed te leek for it.
He told them he would get it for
them. Te de se he had te go down
in the cellar, step ever the body, and
reach a milk pan en a swinging shelf.
When he came up, carrying the pan,
he trembled se that he spilled much of
the milk, and blundered in making change
At 3J p. m. Pierson and Theodere return
ed from school. Mrs. Meierhefter told the
teacher what had taken place, and in
duced him te go te a neighbor named
Kertson, and ask him te summon the po
lice from Orange. Kertson refused te
trouble himself, saying he had just re
turned from Orange, and was tired. Pier
son went te St. Cloud, a small settlement
near by, te send word by the stage driver
te Orange ; but the driver was gene. He
told an Orange greceryman of the tragedy,
and the greceryman premised te tell the
police but forget it. Mrs. Meierhefter sent
a second time te Kertson, telling him he
must go, and finally, at 7 o'clock in the
evening, Pierson and Kersten set out for
Orange, premising te return by half-past
9 o'clock. It was net until 11 o'clock at
night that the police came, and she told
the full story of the murder as here given,
and as she has stuck te it ever since.
In the whole course of the trial net a
single exception was taken, se that it is
net thought that there is any possibility of
a new trial, except upon some flaw in the
indictment, which Lammens's counsel may
seek te show, or upon the discovery of
some new and important evidence, which
can hardly be possible. The state claimed
that the deed was done by Lammens at
Mrs. MeierhelTer's instigation.
