BOY 10 KILLED
FATHERON ML
Declares He Shot Parent
Because of Cruelties
to Family.
By the Associated Press.
READING, Pa., March 10.—The
State began laying before a jury of
six men and six women today its case
against Louis Toontas, the 14-year-old
boy accused of shooting his father to
death “because he was a mean man.”
Because of the tousle-haired boy’s
age. the State seeks only a conviction,
and will not ask the death penalty.
George Toontas, 15, a brother of the
defendant, testified that “a figure that
came out of the darkened parlor” of
their home shot his father the night
of February 15.
George said he accompanied his
father on an auto repair Job that night,
rhey returned about midnight. The
father alighted first and was about to
bang up his hat in the vestibule, when
i burst of rifle fire hit him.
The father staggered from the house,
rhen the "figure” rushed from the
larkened parlor from which the shot
:ame. Twice more the rifle flashed
tnd the father crumpled to the street.
Louis, captured over the mountains
n Schuylkill County the day after a
rifle bullet killed his 45-year-old
father, James, outside the Toontas
lome here the night of February 15,
seemed hardly to realize the serious
ness of the occasion as he was brought
into court for the opening of the
;rial yesterday.
He winked at "the kids” in the court
gallery as District Attorney John A.
Rieser demanded his conviction. Dur
ing the selection of a Jury and two
alternates, he was more interested in
bis boy friends who managed to slip
ay the guards and into the court room.
Whether his counsel, former Judge
John B. Stevens and Harry Lee, would
place him on the stand to tell his
story, when the time came, remained
s secret.
Jail officials and investigators say
the youth told them of beatings he
and others in the family suffered at
the hands of the father, and that he
has declared, "I’d do it again,” in re
lating brutalities he claims led to the
slaying.
District Attorney Rieser, outlining
the State’s case, pictured the boy as
laying in wait for his father. As the
elder Toontas left his automobile, out
side the home, the boy blazed away
from a window of the house.
Then he got into the car and drove
off. Hours later, a boy was seen
loitering about a gasoline station near
Pottsville. Truck drivers fed him
pieces of their sandwiches and pies.
An attendant’s suspicion was aroused
and he notified authorities, who took
the boy into custody and brought him
back.

POLICEMAN BURNED
IN RESCUE BETTER
Adams Saved Infant Nephew
When Gasoline Explosion
Threatened Home.
Policeman James Walter Adams, 29,
who braved death to rescue his infant
nephew front a blazing house, was re
ported recovering in Sibley Hospital
today from severe burns about the
arms, face, head and body.
A gasoline explosion made an in
ferno of the kitchen of the two-story

yesterday, trapping the baby and his
mother, Mrs. Mary Moore. Adams’
sister-in-law, on the second floor.

leg in the fall. As she landed in the
back yard she called to Adams that
the infant Robert was upstairs.

kitchen, up the stairs and brought
Robert to safety. The child, un

Adams, who directs traffic at Four

through blistered lips the accident
which caused $500 damage:
“I was using gasoline to clean the
stove. It was one of those stoves that
has a pilot light. You don’t need a
match to light it. I thought I had
turned out the pilot light, but evidently
there was still a flicker of flame.
‘‘It caught my gasoline-soaked rag
and jumped to a pan of gasoline. I
tried to stamp out the fire, but pretty
soon the whole floor was flaming.”
