up in the streets, quarrels at night
their lullaby.
At the separation of his parents
Willie Zimmer heard his father re
mark, it is charged, that he would
"bump the old lady off" if she left
him.
Willie declares he took his father's
pistol to his mother and begged that
he be allowed to stay with her.
Instead of giving him love, Mrs.
Zimmer is alleged to haye chased
Willie with a broom. The revolver
went off accidentally, Willie says,
and his mother dropped to the floor,
shot through the breast. Willie threw
the pistol on a shelf and fled.
"If they hadn't caughtvme, I'd 'a'
jumped in the river," said the boy
and he was caught fleeing in the di
rection of the Mississippi, a few
bjocks from the crime scene.
The state contends that Willie
Zimmer deliberately killed his moth
er, charging that the fact that the
boy had the gun concealed in a sack
is proof he didn't want to give the
weapon to her for her own defense.
Willie Zimmer, Who Killed His Mother, and One of His Attorneys.
