empanelling a jury for the inquest.
"I shot him; that is all I care to

was han! to crank, and while 1 was
trying to get it started Dr. .McCalla
and Mr. Jones caine into the garage."

"but their actions did not indicate
anything was wrong. I ran the ma

two gentlemen in the garage. When

McCalla called me. His voice seemed
natural. I thought he wanted to give
me some more instructions. I start

I saw Dr. McCalla standing with his
right hand extended and his body
leaning a bit forward. I heard him
say an oath. Just about that time
