Former Judge Olcott, for thu defense,
besrnn his summing up when court

Judgn Warren W. Foster was expected
to deal entirely with the iusanity plea.
The State was confident ot a verdict
of guilty of first degivo nnirdrr, while
tho defense was equally positive the
jury would acquit Schmidt on grounds
of insanity. In that event, he will be re
manded to Matteawan. "
Judge Olcott's closing address was
practically a reading of the important

The fact that Schmidt rented the fiat

in Ills' own name and left behind the

tho murder, as well as nm'na1t!P
