of murder upon them. Morris,
who had formerly worked for
Douthert was suspected, arrested and
tried but acquitted. Several years
later Morris was sent to the state prison
for another offense, and not long ago,
when very sick, and thinking he was
going to die, he confessed that he killed
I uriner Douthert and his wife. Ho re
