such a crime was committed here in

that, and especially Broadus Work

TIRUE BILL FOUND
AGAINST TWO "MEN
Cox and Wikingham Held Without Bail
Murder is Charged. Defense Applies
for pond on Ground That Lois How.
ard was Accidentally Killed.
Greenville, Jan. 3.-A true bill charg.
ing murder was returned in court of
General sessions today against J. R.
Cox and C. C. Willingham, well to do
young business men of Belton, who
are held in connection with the death
of Lois Iloward, a 19 year old girl
who was slain on Christuas eve In
a hotel at Greenville. Judge Mendel
L. Smith heard two motions of the
attorneys representing the accused
Delton men. The first, that. the case
be continued tutil the March term of
court, was granted, .1Judge Smith ex
plaining that he would grant the ecu
tinuance on the ground that Senator
Proctor A. Dlonham and lleprescnta
tive Oscar K. Mauldin, will be in Co
lu1lila attending the sessions of the
general assembly. lie overruled the
motion for ball but gave the attorneys
the right to renew their application
before him or any other judge uion
additional test imony. The defense,
advatie ng the Iheory that the death
of the girl was a case of accidental
shooting, will renew the application
for bail on Saturday. Some of the
muost prominnt citizeis of Belton
have ofiared to sign any reasonable
bortd than the court m1 y 8Y d(c1ide to

This affldavit, which was obtained

There were no other eye witnesses as
Willingham who was in the room

Circumstantial evidence, it is known
will figure largely in the trial.
