KINi MURDER CASE DEEPENS Charges of Grand Larceny, Forgery and Conspiracy. Intimated. New York, Sept. 13.-District At torney Swann announced tonight! that he has sufficient evidence upon which to base charges of grand larceny in the first degree, forgery in the first degree, and conspiracy in his grand jury investigatio.a in to the affairs of Mrs. Maude A. King, who was shot to death Au gust 2, at Concord, N. C. "Of course we have the greater crime in view." said the District attorney. "and all we are doing is preparatory to aiding the State of North Carolina in prosecuting that. 1 "If it can 'e proved that thereli I existed n , lusive opportunity to 1 commit that cr ime, then there is justification for a prosecution for murder. "There is nothing so persuasive to the human mind as a motive. in this particular case the motive was to cover the looting of an estate. or for the purpose of getting the greater part of an estate. "Things are no ing very rapid-i ly in this case. iy the Quickest action upon record we secured pa pers and documents which are now proved to be of invaluable aid to, the prosecutor of North Carolina.
