Mrs. Dickey Freed by
Magnolia Jury.
Magnolia, Miss., Nov. 9.-The
most sensational case ever tried
in this county came to an- end
this morning when the jury :
which heard the evidence and
argument of attorneys for and ]
against Mrs. Callie Dickey, the n
Osykawoman charged withkilling !
her husband, returned a verdict
of noo guilty. a
Mrs. Dickey was indicted at d
this term for the murder of her f
husband, Walter Dickey. a prom- o
inent citizen of New Orleans, i'
whose death under mysterious b
circumstances last summer led T
to the suspicion that he had ft
been poisoned. The fact that R
S Dickey sad his wife were practi- w
CalJy separated on account of W
another, caused her to be sus- a
pected of the crime from the c
outset, and when Dickey's broth- Yi
or, who was with him when he
died, told the officers that the cii
dgng ma had said his wife had the
poisoned him with strychnine bu
uid the state chemist had made do
an alsis of his stomach, And. in
i'g therein over two grains of any
tryobnaine, Mrs. Dickley was
laced under arrest. She was M
addmitted to bond, waived pre- re
liminary invesatgtion and up to had
the time she was indicted, two giv
weeks ago. when she was placed tha
in Jail, had remained quietly at den
her home in New Orleans.
