lTnsband and Brother-in-Law I mpli
cated as Accessories in Xilline
of Young- Student.
Whiteville, N. C., Feb. 14.-Mrn
Rosa D. Hayes, remanated to jail with
out bond, and Neal M. an.d Lloyd Hay
res granted justified bond, in the su!
of 81,000 each, is the result of tb
prelimin~ary hearing before Magis
trates Graham and hoois, giv-en th
three defendants charged with th
killing of Robert M.)Floyd, a youn:
medical student of the Charlesto:
Me diacl college, on Feb)ruary 4, c
this year. at the 'Hayes house, in Ta
bor, N. C.
.The hearing started at 11 a. mi. an
ccntinuecd until 6.30, lagging along e
a snail's pace, characterized by spai
ring and quibbling among the lan
vers and numerous attempts at w
and repartee. Du:ing the entire day
Mrs. Hayes with her husband and
their little 15-months old child, were
in the court room, as was Floyd Hay
es, a youth apparently 15 years of
age. All three of the defendants were
very much at ease, and while concern
ed about the proceeding, appeared not
the least disturbed. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Hayes smiled occasionally at certain
remarks by counsel and witnesses.
Mrs. Rosa D. Hayes.
Mrs. Rosa D. Hayes, who admitted
at the coroner's inquest that she shot
and killed Rober- Floyd, is by no
means a pretty woman, although she
is neither plain nor homely. She is
not handsome or striking in appear
ance, rather is she slight of build,
less than ordinary neight, weighing
hardly over 100 pounds. She appears
to be scarcely over 20 years of age, a
distinct blonde, sharp, up-turned
nose, but otherwise good features. Her
hands are small and well shaped and
she has a small, neat foot. Her eyes
are large bluish-gray, cold, somewhat
vacant in their looks at times, yet
capable of expressing deep feeling, in
fact, her eyes are very striking, caus
ing, not admiration, but fear or un
Neal Hayes is also a blonde, tall,
blue eyes, but -otherwise rather non
descript. Lloyd Hayes is as unlike
his brother as is possible. He is low
browed, heavy features, lips falling
apart, head always bent forward,
cock-eyed, with a shock of thick
heavy matted coal-black hair.
State Charges Plot.
Possibly one of the most striking
bits of testimony brought out today
was this: "If they take you up, tell
them he had his -hands on you," an
injunction which a witness swears he
heard Hayes give his wife a few min
utes after the killing. This, with the
other circumstances, was cited by the
I State to show a plot 'to take the life
On every hand since February 4,
has been asked the question: "What
motive prompted the killing of
Floyd?" The question is still unans
Wered, even after the examination of
some dozen or more witnesses today.
Hayes and his wife were Floyd's
friends, at least they so signed thenm
selves in the1 letters offered in evi
denci.. A large part of Attorney Lew
is' argument was devoted to these de
coy letters, as he termed them, and
the .plot to get Floyd ,into the Hayes
house. but why they wanted to kill
him he did not show, or attempt to
show, or even hint at.
Nothing About "Insult."
Never once during the day was the
word "insult" employed. None of
Mrs. Hayes' testimony at the coro
ner's inquest was introduced. The
characters of those concerned in the
case were not testified to either tor
or against. The State, however,
sought to show, by certain circum
stances, that Hayes and his wife were
preparing for Floyd's cominmg,. that
they conferred togetner on the day
of ~his arrival and that their plans
were then carried out. Hayes' dreclat'
ation that he bought the automatic
pistol for a specific purpose was a
significant bit sof testimony brought
out. Thi's, 'with the daily Itarget prac
tice, the State contends, shows a deep
'Another point, rather significant, is
this: The brief note appearing below
from Mrs. Hayes to Floyd was datedl
Decmber 1, 1910. The postmark,
however, was February 1, 1911, and
the Saturday referred to also, the pro

t equals the best custom make
secution contends, was the Saturday
February 4, on which Floyd was kill
ed. The State holas wnat the date
"December 1," was a "blind."
The defence contended that the
State failed to produce any witness
who would swear that Mrs. Hayes
did the killing.
"Moles" Not in Evidence.
"Moles!" That word was heard at
almost every .turn during the day.
Evidently Mrs. Hayes had recovered
from this affliction, for by a reasonp
bly close inspection of her face in
the court house today, there is not an
apparent trace of a mole on hEr face.
It is recalled that only nine days ago
Floyd was at Tabor to treat these
moles that, as Mrs. Hayes said in her
letter, "were getting dangerous." The
dates of the three letters are also in
teresting, the one from Hayes, Janu
ary 25, the first from Mrs. Hayes mail
ed January 27, and the second mailed
February 1. Floyd was there Febru
One of the really interesting occur
rences of the day was the little im
promptu speeches made by Attorney
Schulken, of the defence, while argu
ing against the admission of the coro
ner's testimony as to what Mrs. Hayes
had said on examination at the in
quest. He upbraided the manhood of
Tabor for allowing a woman, a frail
woman, to be up on the witness stand
without legal advice afid testify
against lierself: that these good men
of Tabor should have befriended her
instead of a "miserable wretch, as it
may be brought out later."
