before the shooting Mrs. Talbot stated
that her husband gave her a fearful
beating, kicking her and grabbing her
by tho hair, pulling her from her bed.
Tier condition was such as to necessi

next, day she met her husband in an
attorney's office for tho purpose of
settling property rights preliminary to
bringing an action for divorce. During
the discussion an altercation ensued and
Talbot struck her. The woman slated
