A sensational killing occured
last Sunday near Bellamy's Mill,
in Halifax county, N. C. Levy
Marriott was the victim, and
Charles Flannigan is charged
with having fired the shot that
caused his death. Flannigan,
according to the report received
here, had gone to Marriott's
home where part of the morning
was spent. Flannigan went for
a drive with Mrs. Marriott and
upon his return was cursed by
Marriott. Flannigan bore the
cursing, but when Marriott told
him he must leave the house,
drew a revolver and fired, killing
Marriott instantly.
Monday a hearing was given
Flannigan at Glenview and he
was discharged, the killing hav
ing been held justifiable. Mrs.
Marriott's testimony was such
as to influence this judgment.
Subsequently, however, she stat
ed that she had been promised
by Flannigan that her hus
band's funeral expenses would
be paid and that she would be
supported f~r life if she would
testify in Flannigan's favor.
Proceeding upon her altered
story of the killing, the authori
ties again arrested Flannigan,
and1 another hearing is to be
given him.
