uTho jury In tho case of Frederick
C. Sanchez, who killed his w.fc iu the

murder in tho first degree today,
Sanchez's defense was tint he shot
his wife while in a nightmare, imagining
a robber bad entered Ids room.
Her life was insured for $11,000.
Tho caso was remarkable because of
the scientific evidence introduced to
support tho pica that Sanchez could

A Saturday's special lo tho Globe-Democrat
gives the following additional
interesting facts concerning the
"For the first timo in the history
of tho country Ihe theory of
has been offered US' the sole
plea in defence of a man charged
with murder. F. C. Sanchez killed
his wire last week. He told the
who arrested him two aiiniilrs
after the crime, that he had been disturbed
by a burglar who had entered
ibeir room, aud who had killed the
woman slecpiog at his bide. Next
day ho coufessed that he had done
tho shooting and ascribed tho fatality
to accident. Ho demanded a ypcedy
trial and was gratified.
Ills attorney startled tho court by
pleading not guilty and offering the
lefensc that tho shooting was done
rthilo the defendaut was asleep. He
claimed that the ptisoucr labored tin-'tier
the impression that bo had been
held up on tho street the liight before
and that the robbers had come
to his room. Under this belief, he
started in his sleep, and, taking a re

Dr. II. T. Pershing, for the state,
controverted many of the statements
of the defeusc by testifying that it
was possible but not probable that
a person could fire two thots without
waking him up.
Tho defense also contended that
epileptic subjects were frequently iu
a homicidal state when awakened
from somnambulism. A ncrson, on
waking up after-doing a vwlcntdced,
always felt remorse. Such individuals
would frequently follow a phantom
for blocks at a time. This was
cited to show a reason for Sanchez's
action in runuing from his
room on Uio morning of the murder,

The verdict of the jury was no sifr

plenty of money, however, this trial
will in nil probability not end the
